J.B. FINDLAY: COMPENDIUM
J. B. Findlay (1904-1973), one of magic's finest historians and a pioneer collector, left behind a rare series of books filled with important writings but nearly impossible to locate, most commanding high prices when a copy has appeared for sale. With the permission of his son David, we've now assembled J.B. Findlay: Compendium, seventeen of his major works and more in a single amazing CD collection, fully searchable for both historical research and your reading enjoyment. You will find all nine of his history-filled Collectors Annuals; fascinating booklets on Charles Dickens' conjuring, the magic theatres of Robert-Houdin and Anderson, and the careers of historical characters like Old Malabar and Testot; his important works on magicians' coins; three essential bibliographies; and even his two miniature books. Completing the overview of his writings is a collection of memorabilia, photos, articles, and lists, plus the three catalogs of the legendary auctions of his estate. The CD also includes Edwin A. Dawes' beautiful biographical essay on his friend Findlay and his definitive Findlay bibliography. All materials are in convenient PDF form on CD for easy searching.
