The Jack Hughes question reminded me to ask if anyone knows the value of the three volumes of his books Jack Hughes World of Magic? I have them in perfect condition and am curious.

The value depends on the market at the time. Lately, almost everything "collectible" in magic has taken a big hit with the exception of super rare items.
A few years back, you could get about $150 for Volume 1 and about $100 for Volume 2.
Volume 3 is still in print or in stock at Viking Magic and is the least rare of all.
Sorry to not be of much help.
I have been wanting to purchase Vol 2 but just have not got around to it.
Do you plan to sell them?

Volume 2 is actually the hardest volume to locate, demanding as much as $300 in the past, just for that volume alone BUT

I would anticipate the resale value of the books to drop dramatically, after this summer. Derek Levler is re-printing the volumes, and all attendees of the FISM will receive a set of the reprinted volumes as part of thier registration, so suddenly the market will be flooded with about 2,000 sets.

Has anyone seen the reprints from this past summer for sale anywhere yet?

My understanding is that the Derek "Hughes Reprints" (at the FISM Convention) - were actually a "BEST OF" the 3 books...and NOT complete reprints of all of the three volumes of material.

Can someone confirm this?

If true, I don't think it will lessen the value of the 3 original Hughes books.
