|-||====== Wimbrough's Missing Trick from Greater Magic ======|
|-||This trick of William Wimbrough, which Dai Vernon recalls having vanished from John Northern 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, Aug. 1992, p. 673), would seem to have been recorded first in Glenn 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 Jean 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, possibly the same man. In //[[http://askalexander.org/display/12474/Expert+Card+Technique/359|Expert Card Technique]]//, 1940, p. 344, Hugard and Fred Braue recorded a method of Luis Zingone's, "Reverse Supreme," with the comment, "a vast improvement" of an effect previously done with double-backed cards, likely speaking of Wimbrough's trick.|
