Encyclopedia of Card Tricks by Jean Hugard

Customer rank: +9

This book is indeed worthy the name Encyclopedia. Originally compiled by Doctor Wilhelm von Deusen in collaboration with Mr. Glenn G. Gravatt (published in two volumes Encyclopedia of Self-Working Card Tricks and The Second Encyclopedia of Card Tricks), and later rewritten by Jean Hugard. It has a very interesting introduction by Ted Annemann where he addresses the issue of inventing new tricks and claiming ownership. This book will provide you with more card tricks than you ever wanted. The combined value of its contents, were the tricks to be computed at their original marketed price, was in the thousands of dollars. Now you can have it for a few bucks.

Hugard added a number of items over what was included in the two volumes by Deusen and Gravatt. These items are bolded in the table of contents below. He also left out some of the material that was in the original volumes.

1st edition, 1937, Max Holden, New York; reprint, 1974, Dover Publications, New York; reprint, D. Robbins & Co., New York; 403 pages. PDF 379 pages.

A truly DEEP book. You could peruse this book quickly....and you'd spend 4 nights doing just that! I'd been looking for some effects using double-backers and this was just what the doctor ordered!!

Loads and mounds and piles of beautiful ideas and effects in this one! A new "top shelf" title in my personal magic library.
