The Secrets of Houdini reprinted

Rogers Press has reprinted the 1931 book The Secrets of Houdini by J.C. Cannell in a new paperback edition for $29.95. The publisher's stated mission is to republish "classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork."

Nifty for us collectors and completists, but has the good old 1973 Dover edition ever gone out of print? I'm pretty certain I can walk into any magic shop in America and still find one sitting on the shelf for about $10. There was also the attractive Bell hardcover published in 1989 that is still surprisingly common.

And if one is so inclined to study the secrets of Houdini, the book you really should be reading is Houdini The Key by Patrick Culliton. Just saying.

You can buy Rogers Press' new The Secrets of Houdini paperback on Amazon.
