Lend Me Your Pack by Victor Farelli

Novel experiments with borrowed cards.

Excerpt from the foreword by Edward Bagshawe:

Although Mr. Farelli has written comparatively little on conjuring—probably under 100,000 words—it may safely be said that his name has become known to magicians all over the English-speaking world. This can be attributed to the exceptional value of the material he has contributed to Magical Literature, and also to the thorough practicability of the effects and methods he has dealt with.

In the present book he has devoted himself to the explanation of effects, all of which can be performed with a borrowed pack, and that such effects are popular and acceptable everywhere, the reader will not need reminding. All the items in the book have been clearly explained with photographs where necessary, and any one of the effects will well repay the magician who adds it to his programme of card magic.
