-This family of secret additions loads cards from the top of the deck beneath a small packet, usually fanned or spread, in the opposite hand, through a pivoting action resembling the opening of a book. The first of these add-ons was recorded in “The Case of the Four Kings” by John J. Crimmins, Jr.; see //[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​14938/Encyclopedia+of+Card+Tricks/330|Encyclopedia of Card Tricks]]//, 1938, p. 327. Crimmins didn’t hold the packet fanned or spread, but the dynamic of the add-on is the same one used in later variants that did. The sleight didn’t attract much attention and has been for the most part forgotten.+This family of secret additions loads cards from the top of the deck beneath a small packet, usually fanned or spread, in the opposite hand, through a pivoting action resembling the opening of a book.
