Octavo. Original blue, white and black pictorial boards, spine lettered in blue. Frontispiece, 6 plates, diagrams in the text. Label dedicating the work to Harry Kellar, “Dean of Magicians & Master of Mysteries” mounted verso of the frontispiece as usual. A little wear to corners, head and tail of spine, and joints through but sound, frontispiece a little loose. A very good copy.
