1 Laresen, William (editor) Genii The Conjuror's Magazine (March, April, 1961)
Los Angeles, California Geraldine Larsen-Baker 1961 Vol. 25 Nos. 8 & 9 Soft Cover Very Good 
Two consecutive issues -- March and April, 1961, both in very good clean, tightly bound condition. Only glitch is a small repaired tear to lower front corner near spine on the April issue. The March issue is especially interesting, as it was mostly written by Herbert Lambert, a magician from Dublin, Ireland, who is pictured on the cover. Features magic tricks from Ireland, plus a rare magical blookplate and litho from Ireland with explanations of their significance. The April issue also holds plenty of tricks, but the interesting thing here is instructions for building a device for the old "saw the lady in two" trick and the burned alive illusion. Great ads!

2 Multiple Authors Man, Myth and Magic (Issues 1-16)
England Marshall-Cavendish 1974 Hard Cover Near Fine No DJ, as Issued 4to - over 9" - 12" tall 
Beautiful, crisp magazines very gently kept. No defect of note. These were published in a series of 112 weekly issues of which I have the first 16. They measure 8-1/2"x11" and each is paginated from the previous magazine bringing the total of these 16 to 464 pages. There are no ads, but lots of illustration primarily in full color. Content is presented encyclopedia style so that most topics appear alphabetcally. These range from A to C.. However, each issue also has a major story that does not follow the encyclopedia format. These include life after death, Black Magic and witchcraft; posession and trance, religions of the east and west, magic and mysticism, the meaning of myth, the state of physical research at the time of writing, the divine king and dying God; ritual magic, cannibalism, Buddhism, Cabala, cave art, and the Celts
