Note About Vanishing Inc.’s Rare Magic Book Collection: These rare magic books have been acquired by Vanishing Inc. from Louis Falanga (of L&L Publishing)’s personal collection. They are in perfect condition and are often the super-rare “publisher editions” where the “numbered versions” may actually be labeled with letters instead of numbers. This varies per book.
