Very much ahead of his time, Arthur Buckley wrote a classic treatise on the art of sleight of hand with cards. This first book in Buckley’s trilogy is packed with original card techniques, gambling sleights, manipulations and flourishes. Buckley also includes a multitude of card effects; many of which are original to him. The book also includes fantastic techniques, effects, and flourishes contributed by Dai Vernon, Domico, Cardini, Bert Allerton, Berg, John Brown Cook, Paul le Paul, and others.
