This book is brand new.
It is on CLOSEOUT because it has been discontinued and this is the last of our remaining stock.
Originally published by Harry Stanley in England, this book has been brought back into publication time and again because the material covered is hard to find.
FROM THE PUBLISHER:
This is the second book in a three-book series.
Routined Manipulations Part 2 is filled with great manipulation techniques.
This book is packed with enough magic to last you a long time.
It's got cards, coins, mentalism, egg bag, balls, and so much more.
It even has Al Koran's entire Blindfold Card Act, which is worth the price of this book many times over!
