Does anyone know where the famous expression "a larger movement covers a smaller movement" comes from?

I think it is in Fitzgee but it might be Helms.

The concept of misdirection and cover of movements (not the cited phrase) goes back to Robert-Houding (Robert-Houdin - The Secrets of Conjuring and Magic; translated by Prof. Hoffmann 1877).
