This lot is Jose de la Torre’s vintage magic book, “Magicana of Havana” published in 1975. The book has complete instructions and illustrations for three impressive magic acts, one each with cards, coins, and ropes. This copy of the book is special because it came from the personal library of Paul Gretzinger, a well-know magician who performed for 50 years as a stage magician and clown. Gretzinger’s signature appears on the inside title page.
The book originally had a taped binding. At some point, the entire front and back of the book was covered with contact paper. The book is approximately 11″ tall by 9″ wide, and has 80 pages.
