From the introduction:
If the vote of magicians and their men audiences could be taken there is no doubt that card tricks would come out on top as the most popular tricks in the world. Go where you will, you can be certain of finding a pack of cards, and with these in his hands a finished performer can entertain an audience for hours. Therefore, I am inclined to think that "More Modern Card Tricks" will have a warm welcome from my readers.
I have included a number of original tricks in this section and some which, although not entirely new, are not generally known. I would specially point out that the tricks which are the most difficult to perform are not necessarily those which will produce the best effect on an ordinary audience. It is the effect which matters - and nothing but the effect; the method by which the effect is produced is of no interest to the audience.
