Re: CONUS ACES

Unfortunatly, If you want to buy Ponsin on Conjuring by Samuel Sharpe, you'lln't find all the stuff because there are only extracts.

Re: CONUS ACES

I know. There is a confusion made by Jean Hugard and everybody take his information without check.
But don't worry, even in france, a lot of magicians haven't read or study the book of Ponsin.
For instance, do you know that one of the first trick using estimation is describe in this book ?

Re: CONUS ACES

If you have the book in french, go to page 108

Aces Trick conjure away fron the hand of a spectator, follow by a multiplication (of aces)
