Someone paid money for an add for Expert at the card table in the sphinx magazine. Could any records of this transaction like a check or a record still exist in the sphinx office files?

And would the sphinx office files still exist in storage?

And could that lead to a clue as to who Erdnase was?

Good question, and no idea Glenn. You'd think folks as clever as magicians would have backtracked all that stuff from the advertisers, shippers, books of the publsiher etc. And how would folks feel if it was a woman?

Hold on! The OLRAM subtlety is really "Marlo" in reverse!
And REDRUM! It's "MURDER"!
And "Evian" is "Naive"!

Just jivin' ya, I don't mean to be snobby. Hey, you're Nova Scotian. Smile

On closer examination of the name, S. W. Erdnase is E. S. Andrews backwards!


You may also be interested to know that Paul Curry is Yrruc Luap backwards.

Best wishes,

Since a few of you guys have wrapped this one up, how about starting work on the identity of Jack the Ripper, the location of the Roanoke colony and, if you got time, trap a sasquatch for us.

Does the trick "The Exlusive Coterie" originate with Erdnase. Did anyone perform the trick before Expert at the Card Table.
I mean it is such a good trick that it would have been perfomed and if you found who man who perfomed the trick you might find the man. Or is the priciple of the effect and old one, that is a lot older than Erdnase.

If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

"Exclusive Coterie" seems to only be Erdnase's patter applied to the old ace assembly (which was probably original to Conus). While he added some sublties, the basic handling is very similar to those before it. For more methods, see Sachs "Sleight-of-Hand".

Like "eek out a living".

"Eek" is what one says upon spying a mouse.

"Eke" is what one does out a living.

"Ekename" comes from the word "eke", an adverb meaning "also". The etymology of this word is different from that of the verb "eke", meaning "achieve with great difficulty".

In a nutshell, yes. The older versions seem to have used Kings. The variations using a Royal Flush, Aces and similar became standard when kings fell out of favor.

Who started the "master ace" line? Inquiring minds want to know.
