Arthur 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.
