Card Manipulations - Volumes 1 and 2

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. This book contains volumes I and II of Jean Hugard's fantastic handbook "Card Manipulations", which includes simple instructions for a variety of fantastically baffling tricks. Jean Hugard 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 to work in the magic field at his home in Brooklyn, New York. Contents include: "The One Hand Top Card Palm", "The Hindu Shuffle or Running Cut", "The Hindu Shuffle as a Substitute for the Pass", "Relativity and Cards", "The Burglars", "The Modern Dovetail Shuffle", "Just One More-The Aces", "Thoughts Anticipated", "A New Certain Force", "The Boomerang Card", "The Double Lift", 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.
