|-||====== Odd-even Divided Deck ======|
|-||This variety of divided deck, used for card locations, appears to predate the red-black divided deck by centuries. It appeared in an unpublished 17th century manuscript known as //Sloane 424//, c. 1600s, p. 142 of the Pieper translation. This anonymous manuscript was translated in //[[http://askalexander.org/display/30886/Gibeci+re/142|Gibecière]]//, Vol. 5 No. 2, Summer 2010, p. 141-172. It also appears in R.P.'s //Ein Spiel Karten//, 1853, 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.|
