A study of Daley's Aces its history and spin-offs.
This treatise is a compilation of methods for performing a simple transposition of pairs of cards - namely the red and
black Aces. The basic plot has a checkered history and, despite being associated with Dr. Jacob Daley, there are lots of tangled connective tissue and ancestral than meets the eye.
Besides these aspects, you will discover that this treatise is a rich mixture of memes. That is, there are lots of bits and pieces to play with and, if you are the kind of student that likes to study the history of a trick and then work through many of the published methods, the process is enlightening.
In the final analysis, providing you reach this summarizing stage, your response will determine this booklet's
value and future. My hope is that you will add something to bolster and perpetuate its utility.
