|+||Oswald Rae first suggested the effect of making a chosen card appear between two panes of glass. See "A Transparent Affair" in his book //[[https://askalexander.org/display/23077/Between+Ourselves+A+Book+of+Exclusive+Magic/37|Between Ourselves]]//, 1926, p. 19. Rae gives two methods. Both relied on holding the card behind both panes, which fact couldn't be discerned by the audience.|
|+||Roughly ten years later Jack Hughes came up with a gimmicked mechanical frame that lodged the card genuinely between the two sheets of glass. First marketed by Davenport's in London, this method eventually became a standard dealers' item. For further details, see Bart Whaley's //[[https://askalexander.org/display/39276/The+Encyclopedic+Dictionary+of+Magic/691|Encyclopedic Dictionary of Magic]]//, 1989, p. 683.|
