Albo 11 – Laboratories of Legerdemain by Robert J. Albo

(c. 2005) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

The Eleventh and Final volume of the Dr. Albo Books limited to 300 copies.

Details: This truly is the final volume of the classic magic series and represents reprinted material from several soft cover editions of “Magic by Country” series of books consisting of: America, France, Germany, and England. The format of these books or chapters is a bit different in that the apparatus is described in words and has accompanying color photographs but typically there are no line drawings. Albo solved a problem for some collectors by reprinting these since certain one were scare and hard to find.

To make it interesting for those who already had the 4 soft cover editions, a chapter 5 was added to include more material that was not previously published including “Thayer Revisted.” It is interesting that this volume was limited to only 300 copies so that limits the possible full sets of the classic magic series at 300.
