 Dr. Ford B. Rogers marketed a forcing deck with pairs of long and short cards glued together as "The '​Ever-Ready'​ Forcing Pack", see the advertisement in //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​38238/​The+Sphinx/​17|The Sphinx]]//, Vol. 11 No. 7, Sep. 1912, p. 137. (Shortly afterwards it was published in Donald Holmes'​s //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​14589/​Tricks+with+Prepared+Cards/​17-18|Tricks with Prepared Cards]]//, 1913, p. 15, and later in John Northern Hilliard'​s //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​13140/​Greater+Magic/​507-508|Greater Magic]]//, 1938, p. 451.) Dr. Ford B.

-The very similar "​Siamese Svengali Pack" was published in //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​13699/​Lu+Brent+s+Exclusive+Card+Mysteries/​18-19|Lu Brent'​s Exclusive Card Mysteries]]//,​ 1934, p. 13, and later in Jean Hugard'​s //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​14938/​Encyclopedia+of+Card+Tricks/​257|Encyclopedia of Card Tricks]]//, 1937, p. 254. But Brent later told J.G. Thompson Jr., that the deck was not his invention and had been credited to him by the publisher - Chas Eastman - in error (see Thompson'​s //The Miracle Makers//, 1975, p. 645). Brent was not sure of the name of the inventor, but thought it was Rogers or Brown. (Rogers is correct; see above. Brown came later; see below.)+The very similar "​Siamese Svengali Pack" was published in //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​13699/​Lu+Brent+s+Exclusive+Card+Mysteries/​18-19|Lu Brent'​s Exclusive Card Mysteries]]//,​ 1934, p. 13, and later in Jean Hugard'​s //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​14938/​Encyclopedia+of+Card+Tricks/​257|Encyclopedia of Card Tricks]]//, 1937, p. 254.

 There is a small construction difference between Rogers'​s deck and the "​Siamese Svengali Pack": Rogers glued short force duplicates behind long indifferent cards. In the Siamese Pack, the duplicate force cards are long, and are glued to the backs of short indifferent cards. Both these decks and the marketed Telematic Deck had the card pairs glued at one end. There is a small construction difference between Rogers'​s deck and the "​Siamese Svengali Pack": Rogers glued short force duplicates behind long indifferent cards.
