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 Lybrary.com 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).
