|-||====== Wimbrough's Missing Trick from Greater Magic ======|
|-||This trick of S. H. Wimbrough, which Vernon recalls having vanished from Hilliard's MS. of //Greater Magic// (Stephen Minch wrote this story up for "Magicana" in //[[http://askalexander.org/display/37157/Genii/25|Genii]]//, Vol. 55 No. 10, p. 673), would seem to have been recorded first in Gravatt's //[[http://askalexander.org/display/17459/Encyclopedia+of+Self+Working+Card+Tricks/50|Encyclopedia of Self Working Card Tricks]]// (1936), p. 49, under the title "Upside Down". It appears there without credit, but in the Hugard revision, [[http://askalexander.org/display/14938/Encyclopedia+of+Card+Tricks/170|p. 167]], the name Wimborough has been supplied. On [[http://askalexander.org/display/14938/Encyclopedia+of+Card+Tricks/345|p. 342]] of the same work appears a trick with the by-line S. H. Wimbrough, likely the same man. In //[[http://askalexander.org/display/12474/Expert+Card+Technique/359|Expert Card Technique]]// Hugard and Braue record a method of Luis Zingone's, "Reverse Supreme", p. 344, with the comment, "a vast improvement" of an effect previously done with double-backed cards.|
