Sorry but Vernon IS the creator of Follow the Leader and published it first in 1932. Marlo (and others) did only variations.

Marlo AND OTHERS...

Sorry, I don't know to use the smileys

I haven't Peter Warlock's variant. Who has it ?

Is it interesting?

Sorry, it was a joke, because pretty much all Marlo did was variations.

Ignore me.

Just a suggestion because I know it wasn't requested, but Tamariz performs an excellent version of Follow The Leader on his 'Lessons In Magic' DVD set which is well worth checking out!

There's a Follow The Leader routine in the Perverse Magic thread of this forum on July 1, 2007.
