|-||====== Bottom Slip Cut ======|
|-||The concept of a bottom slip cut dates back to the early 18th century. It appears in an Italian manuscript known as the //Asti Manuscript//, c. 1700, p. 63 of the Pieper translation. This manuscript was translated in //Gibecière//, Winter 2013, p. 29-234.|
|-||The 20th century kicked the idea into gear, starting with "The Mystery of the Aces" by Charles Jordan in //[[http://askalexander.org/display/14625/The+Four+Full+Hands/28|Four Full Hands of Down to the Minute Magical Effects]]//, 1922, p. 5 of the 1947 edition, and later in //The Tarbell Course in Magic, Vol. 1//, 1941, p. 261.|
|-||An application of the bottom slip cut, unfortunately without handling details, was treated by Stanley Collins as common knowledge in //[[http://askalexander.org/display/25508/Stanley+Collins/293?gems|Gems of Personal Prestigitation]]//, 1952, p. 9 (not published until //Stanley Collins: Conjurer, Collector, and Iconoclast//, 2003, by Edwin A. Dawes). Harry Lorayne's commonly used HaLo cut appeared in //[[http://askalexander.org/display/17951/Rim+Shots/135|Rim Shots]]//, 1973, p. 131. Richard Kaufman lays credit for Lorayne's breakless handling at Derek Dingle's door; see //[[http://askalexander.org/display/37328/Genii/72|Genii]]//, Vol. 67 No. 5, May 2004, p. 72.|
