Card Manipulations - Volume 4

This is volume IV of Jean Hugard's fantastic handbook "Card Manipulations", which includes simple instructions for a variety of fantastic tricks. Card manipulation is an element of magical illusion concerning the creation of effects through sleight of hand techniques that involve playing cards. It is commonly employed in magical performances, particularly in street magic. Jean Hugard (1872 - 1959) was an Australian professional magician. By the end of his life he had gone blind, having lost sight in both eyes as a result of cataract-removal operations. Despite his handicap he continued his work with magic at his home in Brooklyn, New York. Contents include: "The Gambler's Top Palm", "The Change Over Palm", "With Small Packet of Cards Only", "With the Pack in Hand", "New Top Change", "Replacing Palmed Cards", "Using a Table", "On Bottom Deck", etc. Other notable works by this author include: "Show Stoppers with Cards" (1948), "Royal Road to Card Magic" (1948), and "Houdini's 'Unmasking': Fact Vs. Fiction" (1957). Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this classic volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on card manipulation.
