It's a collection of ads for his unique products which were advertised in the 60s in Genii Magazine. He was very creative and rich with many contacts so he was able to produce amazing magic effects. The book is sort of pasted together and the descriptions of the tricks are largely from the instruction sheets.

Thanks Larry, I thought it might be a book of his creations and explanations. I guess this would be good if you owned some of his marketed effects. Again thanks

Since the book (which was published by Magico) is essentially a compilation of Himber's instruction sheets, it IS a book of his creations and explanations (i.e., his marketed effects). Of course, like any book, while it covers all of the information about the effects it does not include the actual props or apparatus that may be required to perform them.

I may go ahead and try to aquire this as I do have a couple of original items of Richard from auctions sites and am becoming a big fan of his thinking. It sounds like it will definatly give a great insight into his magic apparatus as it comes up for sale. Thanks Dick for your help
