Although the pages have yellowed from age, our copies are in like-new condition. These were originally purchased from the inventory of the Hunt & Company gambling supply house in Chicago. This is a collectible and available in a limited supply.
I have been told that most of the content in this booklet also appears in Erdnase' Expert At The Card Table.
