New York: The Noonday Press, (1960). First U.S. edition, preceding the UK. Translated from the Yiddish by Elaine Gottlieb and Joseph Singer. "Told almost as if it were a suspense story, The Magician is the tale of an exceptional individual's struggle with evil"--from the dust jacket. 8vo gilt-lettered black cloth backed mustard paper boards, black endpapers, all but bottom edge black (presumably as issued). Near fine to fine with just a touch of minor wear, in somewhat about very good dust jacket with erasure evident on front flap, spine background color toned to white, and spine ends lightly chippped. Scarce first printing.
