This is the 3rd edition which includes an additional chapter by Dai Vernon and another one by Dr. Daley. (The popular Dover version is a reprint of the 2nd edition and is lacking these two interesting chapters.) This book describes serious stuff. Card moves and tricks for the advanced card man. (For an excellent introduction to card magic see The Royal Road to Card Magic or the Card College series.) Expert Card Technique lists and explains in detail a large quantity of card moves. Card moves are abundant and any good card man will come up with his own variations and twists due to his constant use of cards and tireless perfection of his every movement of each and every joint in his dexterious hand. But to get you started or to refer back to, one needs a solid explanation of the details preferably from someone who has mastered the craft. And this book contains the methods of the masters of card magic such as Charles Miller, Dai Vernon, Theo Annemann, and many more. But not just moves like passes, fals deals and cuts, shuffles, crimps, peeks, glimpses, and jogs, but also the best tricks and routines using these sleights are collected in this magnificent book.
