-The idea of secretly retaining a card reversed in a Stripper Pack while dumping the deck from its case was published in Roy Walker'​s //Card Mysteries// ​(George Armstrong, 1933, p. 91). The case is prepared by thinning a portion of one side to make the gripping of the turned card surer. Walker explains that his method was "based upon a piece of apparatus placed upon the market a good many years ago--The Page Visible Card Finding Box." This was a wooden box made to hold a deck and, in Walker'​s undoubtedly correct opinion, "​looked,​ unfortunately,​ just what it was--a piece of conjuring apparatus."​+The idea of secretly retaining a card reversed in a Stripper Pack while dumping the deck from its case was published in Roy Walker'​s //Card Mysteries//,​ 1933, p. 91.
