New York: Grosset & Dunlap, 1976.
First Edition, Library Edition. Hardcover. Stated first printing, January 1976. 16 5/8" X 11 3/4". 112pp. Yellow pictorial buckram over boards, with posters printed to both boards and spine lettered in black. Rather heavy wear to binding, with bumping and rubbing to edges and extremities, stains to spine, and soiling to cloth. It appears the binder used a dark red glue, with is protruding slightly from the paste-down endpapers--either that or this book is magic and performing an illusion of oozing blood. Binding is firm and sound. Pages are clean and unmarked. Published nearly 45 years ago, this out-of-print and oversize book collects 96 original magic posters, most in reproduced here in full vibrant color, along with a full physical description and detailed historical context for each poster, harder to find in hardcover.
