-Blocks of cards secretly glued together for a methodological purpose are described by H. F. C. Suhr in //Der Amateurzauberer//, 1900, p. 88, in an effect called "Die Anziehungskraft der Erde" by Martignoni. In that effect, the cards of each half of the deck are glued together, making two fused blocks of cards. A selection is replaced between these blocks (after they have been switched in for a normal deck). When held loosely, the selection drops out when the deck is held upright.+Blocks of cards secretly glued together for a methodological purpose are described by Carl Willmann ​in //[[https://​askalexander.org/​display/​10632/​Die+Zauberwelt/​167|Die Zauberwelt]]//, Vol. 4 No. 11, Nov. 1898, p. 166, in an effect called "Die Anziehungskraft der Erde" by Martignoni. In that effect, the cards of each half of the deck are glued together, making two fused blocks of cards. A selection is replaced between these blocks (after they have been switched in for a normal deck). When held loosely, the selection drops out when the deck is held upright. ​(Willmann describes another option to make the blocks: They can be sewn together in such a way that the blocks can still be slightly spread and riffled.)
