The Magic of Rezvani by Maurice Sardina
Translated from French (La Magie du Sorcier) to English by Dariel Fitzkee. It details the tricks, moves, ideas, and improvements of Rezvani, the Persian magician who has been a sensation among the magicians of Paris. Overall it is an excellent work, particularly for those who appreciate the finer points of sleights and how they are deployed in tricks. There is a lot here for card magicians. Also his most famous trick the Tomato trick is explained, but for that routine, I suggest studying The Cushions of the Princess: or the tomato game.

Paul Flemming writes:

Two sleights which deserve special mention are Rezvani's exceedingly deceptive Riffle Pass and his Second Deal. The latter is especially well explained, with a series of drawings which illustrate clearly the vital part played by the left thumb in the execution of this sleight. Among the 16 card tricks (as contrasted with sleights) are two new ways to conclude The Cards Up the Sleeve; the vanish of a thought-of card from the pack and its reappearance in the performer's coat-pocket; The Cards Identified by Touch, a feat in "cardreading" that is accomplished by using a very ingenious little fake; an effective variation of The Card in the Wallet; The Six-Card Repeat, which employs the "rough-and-smooth" principle; and The Card in the Bag, a small edition of the well-known stage illusion entitled The Sack Escape.
