I would like to know some review about H. Lyons Ibidem, published by Hermetic Press in three volumes. Are their effects reprinted in other books? Is it comfortable to read? Besides card effects, I think there are other stuff, like puzzles, may you confirm it? Thanks in advance.

Thanks again.

I have all 3 volumes, and I have sent your questions to Stephen Minch to be answered, as he is more qualified to answear them than I am.

My opinion about Ibidem is that its high quality material (cards foremost), and well worth purchasing (I don't think Hermetic Press have them anymore).
Here is notice I found in an issue of Genii about Ibidem:
"Ibidem ran from 1955 to 1979, during which time its editor P. Howard Lyons produced 36 issues.And those issues accumulated quite a reputation. For its long unperiodic existence Ibidiem became recognized as the best source for avant-garde card magic and the diverse curious pursuits of Lyons and his diabolically inventive crew. In the intervening years, Ibidem has gained a deserved reputation for having published material that is to this day "cutting edge."
