The material is vintage Vernon, the magic that made him a legend among magicians.This is expert level magic. Also included are rich insights into the thinking and psychology that is known as "The Vernon Touch," and historical anecdotes that are both entertaining and informative. Numerous rare photos and pieces of memorabilia from The Professor's private collection have been added, as well as a biographical essay on him by Elizabeth Wilson.
VOLUME ONE contains more than fifty sleights, tricks and routines with cards and coins including No-Sleight Triumph, The Fingerprint Card Trick, Vernon’s original handling for his classic Cutting The Aces, the Turnover Pass, the Vernon Multiple False-Cut, the Push-Through Shuffle, the Diagonal Palm Shift and so much more. While these are now classics of magic, they were explained for the first time in these pages.
