 Concerning the details of the history of the "​Hennig-Kaps"​ Card in Box trick (which features a signed selection), the following was posted in mid-December,​ 2002, on the Genii Forum web site: "My name is Martin J. C. Klein-Hennig and I am a conjuror from Oldenburg, Germany. As Bruno Hennig'​s grandson I'm also responsible for the administration of his [[http://​www.weser-ems-markt.de/​joro/​english.html|internet site]] and his mail account. On December 2nd, we received a mail from Craig Matsouka, who told us about a discussion about the origin of the "Card in Box" method. I translated this mail for Bruno and here is his "​authorized"​ answer: Concerning the details of the history of the "​Hennig-Kaps"​ Card in Box trick (which features a signed selection), the following was posted in mid-December,​ 2002, on the Genii Forum web site: "My name is Martin J.

 +A similar method to Hennig'​s was devised by Paul N. Rylander to switch a prediction rather than a playing card. It appeared in //​[[https://​askalexander.org/​display/​38249/​The+Sphinx/​9|The Sphinx]]// Vol. 49 No. 6, Aug. 1950, p. 125. Rylander placed a folded piece of paper into an opaque cup. For the climax of the effect, the right hand held the correct prediction in finger palm, ready to be switched in. The left hand picked up the cup and apparently dumped its prediction into the right hand. In reality, the cup wasn't tilted enough for the paper to actually fall out, allowing the right hand to push its paper into view as though it came from the cup. This is the same concept as Hennig'​s card switch, albeit with a shallow tilt instead of glue.
