First published in 1902, this is the first book to teach Slight of Hand with scientific precision and as high art.

The Expert at the Card Table was originally titled Artifice, Ruse and Subterfuge at the Card Table: A Treatise on the Science and Art of Manipulating Cards. The identity of S.W. Erdnase has been a mystery to magicians since it’s publication. This is the most influential book in gambling and magic history and is passionately studied and debated to this day.

"The passion for play is probably as old, and will be as enduring, as the race of man." - S.W. Erdnase
