The Expert at the Card Table - COMING THIS MONTH!

Originally published in 1902, The Expert at the Card Table is now considered the bible of card technique. Students and scholars have coveted its contents for over a century. Although there have been many editions printed over the years; few quality, hard-bound versions have been produced.

This month I will be releasing a new, hardcover edition. This is not a print-on-demand or scanned copy. The classic text has been completely re-typeset, and the original artwork has been cleaned and enhanced. No attempts at editing Erdnase's words or changing the book's layout have been made in order to retain the book's charm. Of course, it will bound in the well-known green cloth of the original.  The result can only be described as a "classic" reproduction of this classic. If you ever wanted a hard-bound version of Erdnase's masterpiece this is version to get.

The finished book will be arriving from the printer in 2-3 weeks.

Since Erdnase's work is considered the "bible" to many, I have bound 50 copies in a black cloth cover with "The Cardman's BIBLE" elegantly stamped in gold on the cover and spine. Each book has a red, ribbon bookmark and is embossed on the end paper with a seal stating the book's number. This is a strictly limited edition of 50 copies. Once these are gone there will be no more - EVER. This edition will only be available from me.

Stay tuned to this blog for the confirmed delivery date, price and ordering information.
