Browsing Around in Magic by Bert Pratt

Customer rank: +1

Bert Pratt was a bookworm, somebody who worked his way through libraries and book stores to find the odd appearance of magic in non-magic books. He wrote a series of articles which were published in the Midget Magician, a journal that saw a print run of only 50. It is therefore safe to assume you have never read these articles.

It includes excerpts from books and magazines now practically unobtainable. Bert Pratt, writing as Ptinos, delved deeply into the old book marts of London, into libraries, into magazine files, to find magic and magical references. The resulting reading is charming, unusual and unique. It can be found nowhere else.

If you are a bibliophile conjurer you will immensely enjoy this work.

1st edition 1972, 52 pages; digital edition 2012, 41 pages.
word count: 14825 which is equivalent to 59 standard pages of text
