In 1975 I purchased a bound copy 13 Steps to Mentalism by Corinda. The book is undated, however it contains the 13 step series shown as printed between 1958 and 1960. The pages are printed on glossy paper and published by Corinda's Magic Studio or Corinda's Studio Ltd London. The book also contains Errata and Additions to the full "Thirteen Steps to Mentalism" and an interview with Claude Chandler.

It is a bound copy with a hard cover, dust cover and plastic.

A photo of the front cover is attached.

Can anyone tell me if this is the first bound edition of the 13 Steps to Mentalism by Corinda. If it is, any ideas as to value?

I can't be certain but I don't think it's the first edition. I visited Corinda's shop in Tottenham Court Road in the Sixties and saw them on a shelf - they were £5 which was a small fortune in those days. My memory is probably faulty but I don't think they looked like that.

What I did buy on that visit was one of the individual booklets (Step 9). It's dated 1964 and is published by Accuba Ltd, 7 Tottenham Court Road.

I have a set of booklets, bought in the mid 60's, half of which have a similar cover to the one in the OP's photo. so it could be an early bound edition.
