|-||====== Number-Limiting Procedure for Book Tests ======|
|-||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, is included in Boardé's 1950 //[[http://askalexander.org/display/24784/Mainly+Mental+Volume+Two+Book+Tests/105|Mainly Mental, Volume Two]]//, p. 95. An earlier source yet is likely. Another early description of this limiting force is found in H. G. Cleveland's "Dictionary Test" on p. 59 of //[[http://askalexander.org/display/37664/Linking+Ring/59|The Linking Ring]]//, Vol. 33 No. 8, October 1953.|
