These books were originally very inexpensive at only one shilling or two shillings a peice. There was debate among magicians at the time if these books offered for sale primarily to the public were considered exposure. Professional magicians starting referring to them as "the yellow perils" because their secrets were being made available so cheaply.
These books now are highly sought after by some collectors.
