I am tempted to buy "Art & Magic" by S.H. Sharpe, but the description does not say much about the contents. Does it include tricks, etc. or is it just a book containing comments and stories?

If you own this book please comment here, PM me or send email: rlucas1@mindspring.com

No, yes.
One chapter says it all (most of it):
"A THOUSAND THOUGHTS ON ART AND MAGIC".

Dear Peo,

So it's a compilation of Sharpe's thoughts regarding art(?)& magic, is it?
No teaching magic tricks?
More history?
Is itself a work of art as the cover suggests, or is the cover simply the hook?

Finally, is is worth owining?

It's a collection of thoughts and observations about magic. I'm glad to own it. It's not a book you just read straight-thru, it's one to turn too for something to think about.
