How To Do 40 Tricks With Cards by A. Anderson

Containing many deceptive card tricks as performed by leading conjurers and magicians. Arranged for home amusement.

The book starts out with eleven hints or tips to keep in mind when showing card tricks. This is a mix of the usual tips for beginners, such as not performing a trick twice, or not explaining upfront what you intend to do, and more advanced or less common recommendations such as not performing a trick under its common name but rather invent a new name. This rule is particularly applicable today where it is so easy to search online for the name of a trick and discover its secret.
