This final volume of the 4 volume Vernon Chronicles covers the magical life of Dai Vernon from his birth to his coming to the Magic Castle in 1965. This is an autobiography that will make you feel as if you are sitting with the Professor himself as he shares the stories and experiences of a lifetime. You will learn far more magic here than from any mere book of tricks as Dai talks about his "Attack on Magic", "Practice", "On Using Trick Cards", "Secrets", Effects Defined", "Shade", "Authority", "Great Tricks", "Classics" and "What's Wrong With Magic". As you read you will feel as if you are sitting with Dai at the Magic Castle while he shares the stories and experiences of his lifetime.

Dai describes the techniques he used to establish his world-wide reputation and introduces you to many legends of magic; his idols, such as the great Johann Nepomuk Hofzinser and Max Malini. His inspirations - Nate Leipzig, Dr. James Elliott, the Challenge Card Champion of the World, and J. Warren Keane. Many others including Harry Houdini, Jud Cole, Fred Keating, Jarrow, Cliff Green, and Tommy Downs; as well as such colorful and intriguing characters as Mr. Shock, The Mysterious Kid, Old Snakey Davis, "Slip the Jit" Harry, and Garnet Lee, the Chinaman's toy.

The story of the greatest natural magician the world has ever seen - the fantastic story of the man who fooled Houdini-Dai Vernon.

Please examine the photos of this book. I have included photos of the index, when needed. I have also included photos of especially colorful, interesting or autographed pages. I will be happy to answer any specific question, just send me an Email!

They are levied by your local government customs office and are not within my control. I can not mark merchandise below value or mark items as "gifts" on customs forms - US and International government regulations prohibit such behavior.

Combined Shipping

I am always happy to combine shipping on all of my sales (ending within 5 days, please).
