New York: Darien House, 1977. First Edition. Author, actor and huckster historian Ricky Jay's first book, a hilarious, photo illustrated treatise on the use of playing cards as weapons, with chapters on technique, practice, stunts and self-defense. The scarce cloth edition (a simultaneous softcover edition was also published).
Fine in a Fine dust jacket. Jacket has a tiny nick at one corner, else pristine. A beautiful example of a book that is nearly always found with condition issues.
