The largest work ever published on magic, let alone on the magic of one man. But Stewart James was a remarkable magician, as these three volumes attest. Volumes 1 and 2 of The James File contain nearly 1700 pages of Stewart James's magic, most of it previously unpublished. The third volume presents Bill Goodwin's astonishingly thorough 122-page index to all the material in The James File and in the earlier companion volume, Stewart James in Print: The First Fifty Years. Here are a few of the comments this stupendous work has inspired:
"A truly monumental achievement. James couldn't have had a better tribute." — Martin Gardner.
"The most fascinating reading I have encountered in a lifetime of perusing the magic literature." — Charles Reynolds
"Remarkable. It should be in your library." — Michael Close
"I was floored. Magnificent." — Larry Becker
"Thrilling and deeply satisfying. A masterwork." — Jon Racherbaumer
This three-volume set, produced in large format, comprises roughly 1800 pages crammed with brilliant close-up magic and much more.
