Can anyone tell me with absolute certainty the year that Williamson's Wonders was first published? I purchased a used copy and want to make sure that it is a first edition. Mine says copyright 1989

Usually with Kaufman's books, its pretty easy to tell if its first edition. With Williamson's Wonders, its pretty much the same.

1) If there's a dust cover, its usually first edition.
2) Under the published date, several lines below, you'll see First Edition printed on it.

Hope this helps.

Did the first edition have a slip-cover? I thought it had the graphics right on the cover like Bannon's Smoke & Mirrors.

As far as I know, both Williamson's Wonders and Smoke & Mirrors' first edition came with a dust jacket. Both of my copies have dust jackets. All later copies had graphics printed on the cover.

Maybe it is not in print but you can buy it here:

and likely at other shops as well.

I am completely unfamiliar with this book. Are the effects/sleights considered to be intermediate or intermediate/advanced?
Thanks,
Angelo

This book is awful, not a single thing of use. I don't recommend it at all. I especially do not recommend The Whirly Bird Silk Vanish, 51 Cards to Pocket and ESPECIALLY I do not recommend Torn and Restored Transposition. There is nothing to see here at all....move along, move along.

It's not even worthy as a doorstop (too thin) or scraps for the fire Smile

Williamson is shockingly adept. I was fortunate to have worked with him at an early IBM convention. Is he still out there working??

Yes, very funny man and good magic too. Also, I always liked the fact that he wore a nice suit and tie even though I don't even own a suit or a tie myself. Glad to hear he's still out there. Does he have gray hair yet???
