|-||H. J. Lehman built the first of these for Henry Roltare, probably in the first years of the twentieth century. Lehman went on to build the apparatus for the Hooker Card Rise, from 1914-1918. See Jim Steinmeyer's article in //[[http://askalexander.org/display/37387/Genii/54|Genii]]//, Vol. 71 No. 4, Apr. 2008, p. 54.||+||Dr. James W. Elliott first suggested creating a small table from a walking stick and top hat, in an article he wrote for Henry Ridgely Evans's //[[https://askalexander.org/display/25326/Magic+and+its+Professors/177|Magic and Its Professors]]//, 1902, p. 167. Elliott's table was not self-standing; the bottom end of the cane was inserted into a hole in the stage.|
|+||Henry Roltare reversed the idea, c. 1910, and had the first Table to Cane built for him by H. J. Lehman. Roltare quickly marketed the apparatus in early 1911; see //[[https://askalexander.org/display/38197/The+Sphinx/16|The Sphinx]]//, Vol. 10 No. 2, Apr. 1911, p. 40.|
