Aladdin Books has been based in Fullerton, CA since 1982. In 2007 we moved from our downtown retail location to an office/warehouse environment. Walk-in visitors are still welcome by appointment, however our abebooks.com online shop is open 24/7 for your browsing pleasure. We have over 25 years experience buying and selling fine books, with particularly strong stock and interest in the fields of magic (conjuring) and media (film/cinema, radio, tv) as well as performing arts and popular culture.
Conjuring books has been a specialty since well before we even had a shop, as we began selling in this area back in the mid-1970s. New, used and rare bought and sold. Also stocked: magic ephemera, and selected paraphernalia. We occasionally exhibit at conventions such as the bi-annual CONFERENCE ON MAGIC HISTORY.

SALES TAX: The AbeBooks checkout system cannot detect when California sales tax must be added to your purchase price. As a bona fide California reseller, if we are shipping to a point within the state of California, we are required to collect state sales tax. After confirming availability, we will instruct AbeBooks to request your approval of the sales tax necessary based on the selling price of your purchase. SHIPPING CHARGES: Please note that about 13.5% of the shipping and handling charge is retained by AbeBooks as a fee levied against the bookseller and not passed along for purchasing postage and packaging supplies. That is much of the reason why the shipping charge is significantly higher than actual postage costs. This is especially true for international shipping where international postal costs are high to begin with. Occasionally (such as when ordering a set of books, it will be necessary for us to ask domestic buyers for some additional shipping funds. In this case, after confirming your book(s) is available, we will ask AbeBooks to request appropriate additional shipping charges. In practice, this is a rare occurrence on domestic orders. See below for international shipping. PACKING: All books will be carefully packed to insure safe arrival. We use either quality shipping boxes or other shipping containers augmented by bubble, paper cushioning, or cardboard chipboard to insure safe delivery in the same condition as book was sent. INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: Our default shipping cost is for shipping in a flat rate global priority envelope, small box, or flat rate bag. If your book is too large or too expensive to ship in these containers we will be asking AbeBooks to request adequate additional funds so we can ship your book safely and securely. All international shipments will be listed as books-merchandise on customs forms with value as actual invoice cost. No exceptions. If you have any concerns, please contact us via e mail prior to placing an order for an accurate shipping quotation.
