Some Periodicals:

74.)" THE GEN", publ. by - and House Organ of (Jack Hughes and) Harry Stanley Studio of Unique Magic. 1945 - 1970. London, England. A complete file of the issues - Vol. 1 #1/2/3 (which is a reprint of the original mimeographed #'s 1,2 & 3 as these have always been relatively scarce) to Vol. 26. Included are 68 pages of Supplements - Mostly mimeo and of various sizes - includes Ken Brookes' "In And Around The Studio", "Notes to Subscribers", etc. Almost all the content of these supplements is advertising. It is our opinion this file of "THE GEN" MAY NOW BE as complete a file as possible!. This was a "hot" publication in the 50's and especially the 60's. With Lewis Ganson as the editer/contributor and an emphasis on Close-Up Magic, it was the pulse of Magic in Great Britain and chronicled the British style of presentation to American Magicians. The file is beautifully and professionally bound in an attractive light tan cloth-24 volumes. All the Supplements are loose and separate.. I leave it to you to decide how scarce this file is!!!....$800.00
