Second Hand

In this subtopic, you will find unique pieces from my own collection that I have decided to sell, or one-of-a-kind memorabilia and objects related to magic that have fallen into my hands and that need a good home.

If you want to know more about an object or if you have some questions which are not answered by the description please contact me. And if you think any of the items are priced unreasonably then feel free to send me a counteroffer and negotiate with me.

Magical Experiments (hardcover) by Arthur Good

This is a first edition in excellent condition, with gilded edges.

The best way of learning new things is doing them. Magical Experiments or Science in Play is a fascinating collection of kitchen table top experiments with every day household goods.

Parallax: a topological miracle (used) by David Britland

Softcover stapled booklet in excellent condition (like new). Included is a jumbo-sized version of the prepared card. Also included is a letter by Martin Breese to the Filofax company and a Filofax brochure. Martin pitched them on selling FiloTrix, magic tricks which fit into the Filofax clear pockets, and are sold wherever Filofax is being sold. Parallax should have been the first such trick.

To my knowledge, this FiloTrix idea was never realized. However, it is a nice example of Martin's business sense and constant exploration of business opportunities. A unique association piece for collectors....
