Clean, tight, unmarked; very light wear to edges; light crease to bottom back corner of cover and along spine of front cover; some light rubbing to back cover; age tanned; otherwise unfaded; spine straight and uncreased; very minimal wear; Magus Eisengrim is a master illusionist, the most celebrated magician of his age. Together with his old friends Dunstand Ramsay and Liesl Naegeli, he ensconced at Liesl's castle in Switzerland, where he is enacting the title role in a film about the legendary French illusionist Robert Houdin. Off camera and after shooting sessions, the film's great Scandinavian director, Jurgen Lind, becomes intrigued with Magnus and together with the producer, the cameraman, the incomparable Liesl, and Ramsay himself - draws from him an account of his life story, a story as rich in color, drama, comedy, and gripping tension as any in recent fiction. Magnus's audience is lively and opinionated, and he is not allowed to tell his tale without interruption from his listeners. This is the final volume in Robertson Davies' celebrated "Deptford Trilogy".
