Alton C. Sharpe
Expert Card Chicanery by Alton C. Sharpe

From the Preface:

This booklet, like our other Expert Series, is not designed to be either a reference or an authority in the ordinary sense. Perhaps, at best, it might be called a tickler, a reminder, or a check list, although none of these terms would be exact. It was written and compiled to stimulate one's "thought processes" and to instill creative activity within those who have a fondness for the pasteboards.

Alton C. Sharpe
Expert Card Conjuring by Alton C. Sharpe

From the introduction by Robert Parrish:

This book contains a remarkably select collection of sophisticated means for increasing and deepening the potential for "pleasant illusion" that resides in a pack of cards. These contributions range from presentation ideas such as Fred Lowe's "Second Deal Sam" to the technical refinement of standard effects, as, for example, in Ed Marlo’s "Approach to the ‘Stop’ Trick."

Alton C. Sharpe
Expert Card Mysteries by Alton C. Sharpe

From the introduction by Robert Parrish:

Although much of the material in this book comes from advanced current contributors to card magic, Al has included some fascinating lore from the past. There is, for example, the first printed information on Eddie Fay's glimmer technique. I recall that the late Rufus Steele, an informed man of gamblers' dodges, simply refused to believe that Fay was using a reflector. He thought it was a put-on and that Fay was probably using a stack or a pack of marked cards. Then there is Paul LePaul's wonderful transportation of cards into a sealed envelope. Although he explained the trick...

Michael Daniels
Understanding and Using Gilbreath Principle by Michael Daniels

This ebook is a beginner's guide to the famous Gilbreath Principle and its applications in card magic and mentalism. It includes two ESP-type routines:

Fingertip Sensation

The spectator shuffles the deck. The mentalist (who can be blindfold) then uses his fingertips to correctly identify the colour of cards.

Trinities Card Divination

The mentalist correctly divines attributes (colour, suit, value) of playing cards which the spectator has shuffled, dealt, and covered with his hands while the mentalist has turned away.

[Note: This ebook is a revised extract from Michael Daniels' ebook Trinities, plus an additional routine (Fingertip Sensation).

The Book of Card Tricks by R. Kunard

From the preface:

In offering this collection of Card Tricks to the public it has been my endeavour to make every particular as clear as possible to the uninitiated. It will readily be granted that practical illustration must be vastly superior to the most carefully-written description of anything which, at the same time, requires both rapidity and neatness in execution; yet it appears to me that, if in the following pages I have been successful in making the most intricate trick clear in the manner of its manipulation, proper practice for the acquirement of ease and certainty will do the...

Packet Magic by (Jerry) J. K. Hartman

From the introduction:

The title suggests that the routines to be described solely involve small packets of cards. To that extent, it is inaccurate. Many of the routines utilize the full deck in varying degrees. The excuse is that they center around small groups of cards which by themselves are identifiable as packets, and thus can be combined in longer sequences with routines using those groups alone.

Small packet routines seem to have a certain niceness and precision about them and thus have a particular fascination for cardmen. Fortunately, laymen are generally impressed as well, ascribing...

Scores of street scams, swindles, and card table ruses are explained in this 163 page ebook, guaranteed to separate a sucker from his money just as quickly today as when this tome was first written in the mid-1800s.

Every effect in the L. W. Card Mysteries is an apparent miracle. None of the effects requires long practice or more than a modicum of sleight of hand. Many require little skill at all. Just a rehearsal or two and you'll be all set to amaze and, most of all, entertain.

Red-Hot Mamas: 17 Ways and Means by Jon Racherbaumer

This manuscript is a compilation of methods in order to identify and track its history. In the process, it hopes to show how a given trick evolves, sometimes devolves, and ultimately reflects the periods of time this process has occurred.

The trick in this case is the "Red-Hot Mama" or "The Chicago Opener," a presentation that has been around for almost 60 years and has been a useful, dependable and enduring workhorse.

In its basic form it is an effect where a card is selected. Its back changes color and is set aside. A second card is selected, lost in the deck, and the initial selection...

Orgasm of Astonishment by Ferry Gerats

A very funny version of the collector's plot. 4 Labracadabrador cards find 3 chosen cards instantly.

A version of Roy Walton's collector's plot, which has been in my repertoire for 25 years now and has made a lot of audiences happy. As the hilarious text makes everyone laugh out loud, the thought crossed my mind to call it: "The Funniest Collectors in the World". However because of the awe-inspiring moment that is felt by everyone at the climax when the three chosen cards appear between the collector cards it is more appropriate to call it: Orgasm of Astonishment

The Second Deal: Advanced Concepts for the Card Table by T. Hayes

This ebook takes an academic look at the second deal and its use at the card table, specifically in the game of Texas Hold’em poker. This is achieved by first examining the mathematical rules of the second deal. These rules are then applied to the basic structure of Texas Hold’em and the use of the move is advanced by also considering poker strategy. In addition to this, the probabilities of dealing target cards, when using a binary marking system, are derived. The use of the second deal in conjunction with stacking techniques is also considered, with a focus on the block transfer. Whilst...
