This is a first edition of one of the magic worlds most popular book of the business of magic.

Today it is a real time capsule of the magic scene in the early 1970s. Tons of pictures of young magicians that became greats, and many who have disappeared. My favorite pictures are of Ed Marlo's stripper-magic student, Ezi Rider. How did Jay get those pictures past Frances?

Marshall, Frances Ireland
Frances was the owner of the Chicago magic shop Ireland Magic Co., which she later named Magic Inc. She was, perhaps, the most influential woman in the male dominated field of magic. Her entire life was spent with magic, as a performer, writer and promoter. She was married to magic inventor L.L. Ireland until his death in 1954, and then married magician Jay Marshall. As Mrs. Ireland, she was the founder, in 1938, of Magigals, an association for female magicians (today called Women In Magic).For more than five years, Mrs. Marshall appeared every Sunday in the "Funny Paper Party," a program on WGN-TV featuring Chicago Tribune publisher Col. Robert McCormick.
