-====== Number-limiting Procedure for Book Tests ====== 
-An early description of the procedure of having single digits called out, which the performer arranges in descending order to create a free page selection, thus subtly limiting the number of possible pages that can be selected, seems to be in H. G. Cleveland'​s "​Dictionary Test" on p. 59 of //​[[http://​​display/​37664/​Linking+Ring/​59|The Linking Ring]]//, Vol. 33, No. 8, October 1953. However, since this ranging force was included in Boardé'​s 1950 //​[[http://​​display/​24784/​Mainly+Mental+Volume+Two+Book+Tests/​104|Mainly Mental, Volume Two]]//, there has to be an earlier source.
