This is one of the largest magic books ever published. It is a testament to the genius of one man.
Stewart James In Print features more than 400 tricks and routines Mr. James has published or marketed over a fifty year span of incredible creativity. In addition to scores of intriguing special chapters, each trick is prefaced by a fascinating introduction. It is here we learn much about the history of magic in this century, the evolution of these ground-breaking original mysteries and, indeed, Mr. James' own unique techniques to ignite the creative process.
When this book first appeared, it shocked the magic community. It was as large as the New York phonebook, 1025 pages filled with 412 exceedingly clever tricks, and all by one man! And this was only the first volume, beginning a chronicle of unparalleled inventiveness that would be completed years later by THE JAMES FILE. When word of the quality of magic presented in STEWART JAMES IN PRINT began to circulate, two printings of the book sold out quickly and it has been out of print and eagerly sought after for years. The breadth of material is amazing, the ingenuity unique in all of magic.
