It's nice to have a featured book on the front page (at least we think it is), but what about some of those we've had in the past which you might have wanted to look at but just hadn't gotten around to. I thought I would start this page to sort of keep track of the past featured books. We generally have a little more to say about the featured book, so maybe the extra information might help someone.

How about Books, including book care, how to tell first editions and other ordinary and esoteric knowledge about books. And if you would like to pass along something you've found useful, let us know.

This page is about all of that and anything else that comes up we think you might be interested in. No telling what will show up here. I'm sure we'll duplicate information on the rest of the site, but a lot of it will be unique.

Just a reminder, repeat customers through our site receive a 10% discount. So, if there is a book you would like to order from any of the publishers we deal with, we can order it for you and maybe save you a little money. Just e-mail us at info@whiteunicornbooks.com.

PLEASE, if you find a mistake on our site, notify us. We invite your comments. Thanks for looking -

The Mathematics of Magic: the greatest discover of the ages - at least, that's what Professor Harold Shea thought. With the proper equations he could instantly transport himself and his friend Reed Chalmers to other times, to visit the wondrous lands of ancient legend.
