Truly an advanced course on card magic, and card manipulations, with contibutions by such masters as Dai Vernon and Richard Cardini, and with card sleights used in cheating at cards. Considered the best book on gamblers technique since Erdnase! With a six page nomenclature of card terminology, supplemented by forty original card experiments, profusly illustrated with photographs. Ranked as one of the top Card Magic books along with works by Huguard, Downs, LePaul, and Dai Vernon! A combination of these Card Magic books cannot be beaten!

Another intriguing collectible from the personal library of entertainer and bibliophile, Jay Marshall.
