Expert Manipulative Magic by Charles C. Eastman

A great manuscript describing manipulative magic with cards, coins, and balls. Included are several moves and effects by legendary trade show magician Tommy Tucker, including the first release of his classic "Six Card Repeat".

Excerpt from the foreword:

In answer to their numerous requests for the latest sleights, tips and "dodges" used by the up-to-date card manipulator, I'm giving them a selection of forty items to choose from. All of them have been used by the writer, so therefore will be found practical. Every reader, be he "an expert" or a young enthusiast, should find something that will suit his style and personality well enough to be added to his repertoire.

Other items, while not new, have never appeared in print before (to the best of my memory). While others, such as the "Continuous production of fans of cards at the finger-tips, Expert fans," etc., are inserted at the many requests of correspondents and brother magicians. The few old "Chestnuts" (without which it seems impossible to issue a book without inserting a few) have been so altered and improved that they can be relied upon to throw the spectator "who knows how all those tricks are done" off the scent.
