Marked Cards & Loaded Dice: Crooked Gambling Devices the Highlight of Potter & Potter’s January Auct Potter & Potter Auctions' January 29th sale will feature an unusual assortment of cheating devices – secret apparatus used to cheat at card and dice games.
“Like Erdnases’s book, this auction will be divided into two categories,” Fajuri said. “The first will be the card table artifice material – the gambling devices, both straight and crooked. After that comes the legerdemain.”
Among the magic books will be 18th and 19th century instructional texts in English and foreign languages, as well as numerous limited edition and collectible publications from every decade of the 20th century.
Live internet bidding will be hosted by Liveauctioneers.com.
