Jean Hugard & Fred Braue
Tricks and Sleights: Miracle Methods No. 4 by Jean Hugard & Fred Braue

Twenty-one original and impressive card effects plus eleven new, practical, useful, simple sleights by these two masters of the art of card magic.

Paul Fleming wrote:

This latest number in the Hugard and Braue Miracle Methods series might well have been called Tricks and Sleights with Cards, for it deals wholly with this most popular branch of magic. It is uniform in format with the first three volumes of Miracle Methods, and is bound in soft boards. It is a booklet of 32 pages, six of which are used to explain eleven card sleights and the remainder to teach twenty tricks with cards. There are twenty...

Paul Fleming wrote:

This latest addition to the Hugard and Braue Miracle Methods series is a 32-page booklet, bound in soft boards and similar in format to these authors' No.1 ("Stripper Deck") and No.2 ("Shuffles"). It contains 32 tricks, nine of which depend upon...

Miracle Shuffles and Tricks: Miracle Methods No. 2 by Jean Hugard & Fred Braue

Paul Fleming wrote:

When Hugard and Braue's Miracle Methods made its appearance some six months ago, we had no warning that it would be followed so promptly by Miracle Methods No.2, so that the publication of this latest Hugard-Braue collaboration comes in the nature of a pleasant surprise. The first...

The Stripper Deck: Miracle Methods No. 1 by Jean Hugard & Fred Braue

The Stripper Deck has nothing to do with a girl shedding off her clothes, but rather is a specially gaffed deck. However, the gaff or preparation is not noticeable with the naked eye. It can even be handed out to spectators for shuffling and cutting. This manuscript outlines various moves as well as tricks with the Stripper Deck. Practically all effects can be achieved with pure sleight of hand using an unprepared deck. But the Stripper Deck simplifies the handling and makes miracles possible without difficult moves, leaving you time to focus on the presentation.

The Invisible Pass by Jean Hugard & Fred Braue

It is supposedly the first book devoted to a single sleight - beautifully layed out with photos as well as drawings off all stages of the invisible pass. A detailed and thorough explanation of this form of the pass. The pass is a difficult move. Many books barely scratch the surface when they try to teach a shift or pass. This book is entirely devoted to a single move and leaves no open questions.

In a letter to Paul Fleming Nov 5th 1944 Fred Braue talks about his "invisible pass" for the first time: "...I mentioned earlier a special interest in the "pass". Jean and I are doing another little...

Expert Card Technique by Jean Hugard & Fred Braue

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...

The Royal Road to Card Magic by Jean Hugard & Fred Braue

The younger generation of card magicians probably knows or has heard of Card College by Roberto Giobbi. The Royal Road to Card Magic is very similar but of older vintage and doesn't cover as much ground. It introduces the novice into the art of card magic one move and principle at a time, always with tricks accompanying the moves. It is therefore not a mindless list of moves but a well prepared and thought out textbook. It will take the beginner to an intermediate level. Once The Royal Road to Card Magic has been mastered one can move on to Expert Card Technique which requires a higher skill level.

Actually because Expert Card Technique did not sell well...
