Magic and Magicians

The world of magic is one of illusion and mystery. Since the beginning of civilization, people have attempted--or claimed--to harness mystical powers, and magic has become quite a popular pastime for people of all ages. Whether you're interested in the life of Houdini or want to become the next Harry Blackstone, you'll find rare books around which to build a collection. Meanwhile magic often figures prominently into some of the world's best literature, from the Harry Potter series to the classic works of Oziana.
