-====== Odd-even Divided Deck ====== 
-This variety of divided deck, used for card locations, appears to predate the red-black divided deck by centuries. It is described in "Sloan 424", estimated to have been written in the 1600s; see //[[|Gibecière]]//, Vol. 5, No. 2, Summer 2010, p. 142. It also appears in //Ein Spiel Karten// by R. P., Prague, 1853, Part II, item 4, p. 48 of the Pieper translation, titled "The Quickly Found Cards". And Reinhard Müller reports finding the description of a divided pack (nature of division not stated) in //Verschiedenes zum Unterricht und zur Unterhaltung für Liebhaber der Gaucheltasche, des Magnetismus, und anderer Seltenheiten// by Hofrath von Echershausen, München, 1791.
