Marco's Comments:
Reprint of a rare manuscript from the 1920s of Al Baker, dealing with billet switches using a thumb tip. Some handling ideas are very good, and expecially good is the 3 cards routine, "Al Baker's mind-reading card trick" (on page 474 of "The Secret Ways of Al Baker"). A clever use of a wide card for a peek... Bought in a lot from with many of the Al Mann booklets. It came unbound as Chris Wasshuber bought the remainders of the Al Mann's books and has been selling them for years. I spiral-bound it myself (with the A4 binder).
