The Rich Cabinet Collection

Coming Soon!

In the not-too-distant future, Magicana will be releasing the complete collection of Dr. Edwin A. Dawes’ long-running series on magic history, “A Rich Cabinet of Magical Curiosities,” published since 1972 in The Magic Circular of the famed Magic Circle.

Over the summer of 2020, Dr. Dawes completed his epic five-hundred article series for The Magic Circular. This unprecedented achievement is a total triumph.

It’s time to bring this historic project together into one big, collected set. The Rich Cabinet Collection will be that definitive set, composed of five hundred articles written and updated by Dr. Dawes.

And this set is no mere reproduction.

We are revising, updating and enhancing each article, illustrating and illuminating your journey through magic history with Dr. Dawes.

We don’t have a final price just yet. But we will soon, so please check back regularly for updates and information.

Have a question? Send it to—but we should warn you now, due to the size of this project, we do not have an official release date yet. It’s best to sign up to our eList, and we will send you news as soon as we have details to share.

The complete set will comprise nine volumes, which includes an index. 

Each volume is envisioned to be 11.5” x 9” (29 x 23 cm), and to contain approximately four hundred pages each. The comprehensive index will be published as a separate volume.

The nine volumes will be sold, strictly, as a set; no volumes will be sold individually. And, there will be a limited number of sets printed.

Check back soon for pricing and pre-ordering.
