Crambrook's Catalogue 1843 (Collectors' Workshop) 300 limited edition
This forty-eight page gem, published in 1843, is the first English-language magic catalogue in the world. The W.H.M. Crambrook Company established itself as purveyors of magic equipment in 1841 in London. It listed Charles Dickens among its customers and, shortly after its opening, published a brief catalogue, long lost to antiquity. However, the second edition, Corrected and Enlarged, has managed to survive -- just barely. Three copies exist in the world today in the libraries of Burton S. Sperber, of Los Angeles, the late Dr. John Grossman of Connecticut and David Copperfield. Burt Sperber graciously lent us his. Collectors' Workshop has reprinted The Crambrook Catalogue for your enjoyment, which includes not only the Deceptions and Magical Curiosities but also A Complete Expose--the Baneful Arts By Which Unwary Youth Too Often Become the Prey of Professed Gamblers and an extract from The Anatomy of Gambling (by permission of Fraser' s Magazine.) If that were not enough, you receive The Art of Fortune Telling by cards and, indeed, by the finger nails. All these treasures were part of this marvelous nineteenth century booklet. The Crambrook Catalogue is secured in a fine stationer. This one is mint however there is a small split at the top corner of the binder folder not really noticeable. Limited addition of 300 copies.... this one is unnumbered. Price $49.00
