Card Problems by Arthur BuckleyArthur Buckley started to release his card problems in 1924 when two booklets with five problems each were released. Buckley also released individual problems in their own manuscript, together with explanations of moves. Later Dariel Fitzkee reprinted 12 problems in The Card Expert Entertains. And finally in 1930 Dariel Fitzkee published this series of 30 card problems including all the problems published earlier.

These are all wonderful sleight-of-hand effects with cards.

Mr. Buckley's own sleights are explained in three previous publications, The Triple Climax, The Burglar, and With A Pack Of Cards And Four Pockets.

Effects with Cards 1 by Arthur BuckleyArthur Buckley, one of the great sleight-of-hand artists with cards and coins, has written a series of twelve problems. This booklet is number one. It is illustrated by Harlan Tarbell and edited by Gus Moford. Dariel Fitzkee later reprinted these twelve problems in The Card Expert Entertains but used different inferior illustrations. If you have ever heard something about the 'Buckley card problems' this is one of them.

Arthur Buckley

Card Control by Arthur BuckleyThis is not a book for beginners. But it is a book that will lift up the devoted student by two or three levels of proviciency in card handling. Buckley, born in Australia, was one of the masters and innovators of card magic. He studied the card gamblers as well as the top magic performers. This book with over 300 photos, of which most have been enhanced by drawing lines over them to increase contrast, and 40 outstanding routines, is a gold mine and challenge for any card worker.

1st edition, 1946, Arthur Buckley; reprint, 1993, Dover Publications, New York; 219 pages.
