BAKER, Al (1874 – 1951). Magical Ways and Means. Minneapolis: Carl Waring Jones, (1941). First edition. Publisher’s pictorial cloth, illustrated with photographs and line drawings, the latter by Tarbell. Small 4to. INSCRIBED AND SIGNED on the flyleaf: “To my friend Sam Horowitz with whom I have worked out many fine effects. Sincerely Yours Al Baker Dec. 1 – 41.”A wonderful association copy presented by Baker to his fellow member of magic’s unofficial “inner circle,” S. Leo Horowitz. Many signed copies of this book have survived the years as Baker autographed a quantity when the volume was released. The inscription to Horowitz is in a different shade of ink than the signature and date, but both are in Baker’s hand.
