From the introduction:
Included in the 49 effects are some that are new and some that have been favorites of professional Magicians for years, but all of them have been tested on their merits as entertaining and mystifying tricks.
All of these tricks can be performed with any deck of playing cards, with little or no preparation beforehand, and in compiling them, it has been the aim to include only such tricks as may be performed simply with a pack of playing cards, without the necessity of any extra paraphernalia.
These tricks are easy to do, and may be performed once you have the directions well in mind. In studying the instructions, always have a deck of cards in your hand, so that you may learn by actually doing the trick as directed.
