Marco's Comments:
Biography of Carter by Mike Caveney, from the Carter correspondance and scrapbooks that Mike acquired. Book out of print (since the publication of Glen David Gold's "Carter Beats the Devil") and that fetches high prizes at any auction. Very good, very detailed: Carter's own letters are very good - he was a good writer, probably better as a writer than as a magician.
