The largest work ever published on magic, let alone on the magic of one man. But Stewart James was a remarkable magician, as these three volumes attest. Volumes 1 and 2 of The James File contain nearly 1700 pages of Stewart James's magic, most of it previously unpublished. The third volume presents Bill Goodwin's astonishingly thorough 122-page index to all the material in The James File and in the earlier companion volume, Stewart James in Print: The First Fifty Years.

Here are a few of the comments this stupendous work has inspired:
"A truly monumental achievement. James couldn't have had a better tribute."
- Martin Gardner

"The most fascinating reading I have encountered in a lifetime of perusing the magic literature."
- Charles Reynolds

"Remarkable. It should be in your library."
- Michael Close

"I was floored. Magnificent."
- Larry Becker

"Thrilling and deeply satisfying. A masterwork."
- Jon Racherbaumer

This three-volume set, produced in large format, comprises roughly 1800 pages crammed with brilliant close-up magic and much more.

While the regular edition of The James File is out of print, we still have a small number of the 200 specially bound deluxe sets of The James File available.
Each set is numbered and signed by Allan Slaight, and comes in a sturdy slipcase. Also included only with the Collector's Edition is a VHS tape of Stewart James in a 1987 performance, and 34 additional facsimile pieces of rare James-related memorabilia. There are very few of these sets left, so don't hesitate. When they are gone, this remarkable work will be unavailable in any form.
