Controlled Coincidence by Victor Farelli

A subtle system for card workers. Four card miracles.

Excerpt from the introduction:

In the Winter of 1928, or early in the following Spring, Messrs. Bagshawe & Co. issued a catalogue entitled "New Magic," in which an item called "Card Control" appeared. Briefly, the effect was that any card (not forced) could be taken from a pack - if desired, in the performer's absence - and the performer was able always to locate in the pack a card of the same VALUE and a card of the same SUIT, as that chosen.

Being struck by the novelty of the effect I wrote to Mr. Bagshawe, requesting him to send me the trick and adding: "As a matter of experiment I have worked out a method to obtain the same result as you do with Card Control. I shall be glad when the instructions arrive, as I am anxious to know if I am on the right track as regards the method."

As a matter of fact, I was entirely wrong, my system being quite different from the original. However, Mr. Bagshawe thinks my version of the effect an improvement .... hence this little booklet.
