-Johann Hofzinser had a one-handed palm that was crudely described in Ottokar Fisher'​s //​Kartenkünste//,​ 1910, p. 44 of the Sharpe translation. ​Another early technique was L'Homme Masqué'​s method, which was used for both single and multiple cards, ​appearing ​in Camille Gaultier'​s //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​20099/​Magic+Without+Apparatus/​111|Magic without Apparatus]]//,​ 1914, p. 91. Walter Gibson also published a method -- albeit an awkward one using the forefinger -- in //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​38627/​The+Sphinx/​8|The Sphinx]]//, Vol. 17 No. 12, Feb. 1919, p. 232. But the common technique still used today, of the right hand arching over the deck to press down with the little finger on the front-right corner, was published by John Elrick in //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​38820/​The+Magic+Wand/​58|The Magic Wand]]//, Vol. 19 No. 145, Mar. 1930, p. 48.+Johann Hofzinser had a one-handed palm in the mid-1800s ​that was crudely described in Ottokar Fisher'​s //​Kartenkünste//,​ 1910, p. 44 of the Sharpe translation.
