Marco's Comments:
Reprint of two Elizabethan books on confidence tricks. The first one contains a very thought-out con involving card gambling, and a card trick explained to the victim of the scam. The trick is the first printed description of the thee knaves separated in the deck that come back together. Another entry is about a conned shoemaker from Bury St. Edmunds, most interesting.
