Card Through Table

This effect is described in Julia de Fontenelle's Manuel Complet des Sorciers, 1831, p. 281, under the title of “Pour faire passer une carte à travers une table”. The method involves secretly licking the hand, so that the selection (on top of the deck) adheres to the hand when pressed to it, before the hand goes below the table.
