-The general effect dates back to the 19th century. [[cards:​classic_fan_force|Classic forcing]] four of a kind on a single spectator, one card at a time, was described in R. P.'s //Ein Spiel Karten//, 1853, p. 58 of the Pieper translation. Johann Hofzinser was also sowing seeds in similar fields around ​the same time. He would begin his trick, "The Four Eights",​ by classic forcing the four Eights on four spectators. See //​Kartenk√ľnste//,​ 1910, p. 33 of the Sharpe translation. In "The Power of Faith" (ibid. p. 69), Hofzinser accomplished the same effect by switching three of the selections out with a [[top_change_with_a_packet|packet top change]].+The general effect dates back to the 19th century.

-William Larsen Jr. approached the effect by palming the four Aces, spreading the deck for four selections, and then performing a four-for-four palm change. This was published in //​[[https://​askalexander.org/​display/​38500/​The+Sphinx/​13|The Sphinx]]//, Vol. 20 No. 5, July 1921, p. 173.+William LarsenJr. approached the effect by palming the four Aces, spreading the deck for four selections, and then performing a four-for-four palm change.

-Louis Lam described the idea of a spectator making four piles to find the Aces. It was an inversion of the now-common cutting sequence, with the spectator dealing any number of cards she desires into four piles and finding an Ace at the bottom of each. This was published in //"​Would You Believe It?"// 1935, p. 5.+Louis Lam described the idea of a spectator making four piles to find the Aces.

 David Michael Evans points out that Audley Walsh included the idea of a spectator choosing the four Aces as one phase of "The Audley Walsh Coincidence",​ in //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​15710/​Jinx+No+021/​6|The Jinx]]//, No. 21, June 1936, p. 122. David Michael Evans points out that Audley Walsh included the idea of a spectator choosing the four Aces as one phase of "The Audley Walsh Coincidence",​ in //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​15710/​Jinx+No+021/​6|The Jinx]]//, No. 21, June 1936, p. 122.
