The Cards By Weight


332 views  |         

Take a parcel or cards---say forty---and privately insert among them two long cards



Let the first be, for example, the fifteenth, and the other the twenty-sixth, from the top.

Seem to shuffle the cards, and cut them at the first long card; poise those you have taken off in your hand, and say, "There must be fifteen cards here"; then cut them at the second long card, and say. “There are but eleven here"; and poising the remainder, exclaim, “And here are fourteen cards." On counting them, the spectators will find your calculations correct.

 MAGIC MADE EASY
We couldn't find the author of this collection but it's a compilation of tricks so old and classical we are reasonably convinced no one will complain so long as we give due respect to the craft and the magicians who practice it.

Hundreds of Amazing Parlor Tricks!

We did not invent these tricks and claim only the credit for the restoration, formatting, and strategic derivatives.

To help protect against grifters and flimflams we recommend you learn as many as you can at a rate of one or two a day. Even if you don't practice each trick, read and understand how they work.
