First edition. Green cloth with gilt stamping on the front cover and spine. Illustrated, 205 pages. Ex-libris Fred Scholes. Corners rubbed, toning to pages, front hinge a bit loose, else in good condition. Perhaps the most important book on sleight-of-hand with cards, Erdnase’s work is best known by its cover title, The Expert at the Card Table. In the 120 years since its initial publication, the book has never been out of print. This work has been a constant source of inspiration (for full-evening shows, films, and discussion), and is now one of the most sought-after works in the literature of magic and crooked gambling.
