Frank Lane was a magic inventor and dealer who wrote and edited numerous magic books, among them six volumes in which he explained a variety of ideas of his own devising, of which this is the third. Lane begins Ideas No. 3 with a clever sleight-free card divination that he promises will fool both magicians and laymen, and much of the card-based material in this booklet is in a similar vein, requiring little more than a deck of cards and some presentational flair. “No sleight of hand except a Pass” is the amusing note accompanying one explanation, but for the most part, the card tricks on offer here are self-working. Lane intersperses further card effects with observations about props including spring flowers, handkerchiefs and thimbles, and closes with his thoughts on picking locks. An interesting little read.
