Bound in full green imitation leather, with upper board and spine stamped in gilt. Binding is firm and sound. Occasional ripple to page at gutter; this appears to be due to the binding method.

After over 30 years of collecting, Ken Klosterman offers a rare look into what has made his collection, The Salon de Magie, a legend within the inner circles of magic and collecting. Housed 83 feet beneath the surface of the Earth in an abandoned mine, the Salon de Magie is home to some of the finest pieces in the history of magic. Robert-Houdin, Hofzinser, Herrmann, Kellar, Houdini, Germain, and dozens more of the greatest magicians in history await you in this new book from the Salon de Magie.

Read the biographies of the major collectors in history and how parts of their collections came to reside in the Salon de Magie. Then, take a virtual tour of the museum, with detailed histories of over 100 of the finest pieces in the collection. Each book also comes with a DVD containing an interview with Ken Klosterman and a video tour of the Salon de Magie. (publisher)
