-Edward Marlo published a precursor for this idea in "​General Ace Trick"//​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​10936/​Pasteboard+Presto/​11|Pasteboard Presto]]//, 1938, p. 9. There, a type of Diminishing Lift sequence is done without reversed ​cards in the deck. A series of Multiple Lifts of decreasing size is done on top of the deck to show four apparent duplicates ​of the same Ace while switching in three other Aces. Marlo later published the Diminishing Lift Sequence, using secretly reversed cards and Multiple Turnovers ​to switch cards, creating a better illusion, in //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​11088/​Ibidem+2/​138|Ibidem]]//,​ No. 21, June 1960, p. 10. Marlo'​s notation dates it as August 23, 1959. In //[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​11088/​Ibidem+2/​164|Ibidem]]//, No. 22, Oct. 1960, p. 472-478, Marlo contributes other tricks using the diminishing lift sequence, which he dates back to 1953 and 1955.+In this sequence, cards are turned over on top of the deck with a diminishing impromptu double backer made of secretly reversed cards. The term has also been applied ​to All Alike displays with small packets; for this display ​see [[cards:multiple_lift_display_sequence|Multiple Lift Display Sequence]].
  
-In //The Unexpected Card Book// (1974) Marlo wrote“For the record, the first one to apparently ​show three cards in the hands all alike was [Edward] GBrown in an article titled THREE GUESSES in //The Sphinx// for May 1943; howeverhe did not use the Buckle but rather lifts and also used secretly four cards.” The Edward GBrown sequence relies on the selection being third from topBrown would display the card with a triple lift, followed by a double ​lift, and would then steal the bottom card away before showing the selection once more.+Edward Marlo published a precursor for this idea in "​General Ace Trick", ​//[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​10936/​Pasteboard+Presto/​11|Pasteboard Presto]]//, 1938p. 9.
