-This idea dates back at least to the late nineteenth century. It is listed in a Hamley Brothers catalog about that time. Professor Hoffmann described it in //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​19034/​Later+Magic/​51|Later Magic]]//, 1904, p. 27. He also attributed the first practical vest servante to David Devant on page 25. Eddie Fields ​remembers ​that in the 1930s, ​Audley Walsh developed a body servante for close-up work. And Fred C. Baumann published details on a similar servante made for coin work in his //Odyssey of Classic Coin Sleights//, 1983, p. 52. The Hamley Brothers servante was larger than the close-up and coin servantes developed later by Walsh and Baumann.+This idea dates back at least to the late nineteenth century.
