I went with Vernon as well, but for a reason no one else has mentioned. While his skills were legendary, he was also responsable for influencing 3 generations of the best magicians around. These are people that taught the teachers that taught the teachers, ...that taught us.

In a way, Vernon was instrumental in shaping what is modern magic. His ideas about minimalism in magic have become so part of our art, we barely think of an effect he has not influenced if not directly, than indirectly...by influencing the people that then shaped it. Magic should be simple. It should be possible to describe an effect in one sentence. The less the fingers move the more magical it appears. He influenced Ammar, he Influences Roth, etc...

As to Footage of Vernon He appeared on Mark Wilson's TV show once and did Cups and Balls, and Linking Rings I believe. And Penguin carries it. Not sure where else footage of him may be found.

Vernon. He invented the DL.

Vernon did not invent the DL - it dates back to the 1600's, same as the pass. Well, mention of it dates back that far anyway. I don't remember the name of the manuscript, but Lee Asher mentions it in his lecture.

It was invented by Richard Neve. It was published in his book The Merry companion. (1716) He was also the 1st to publish the ambitious card plot. It was under the name "seem to change the top card for another".

I got this from Lee Asher DBD and Tyler Wilsons Dominatricks.

I thought a DL was first described in print in The Discoverie of Witchcraft.

so you guys think Vernon's skill is way better than marlo's??


It is unfair to say "way" better. They are both excellent, most just like Vernon better it seems. It is like asking do you prefer Skippy or Jiff.


Actually, Jiff is way better :lol:

I think it's from the fact that almost every basic sleight is said to have been mentioned in the thing...

I also read the 'fact' in a preface of one of the magic books available at the Learned Pig Project. I will dig though there again to see if I can find it. If not, lets go with what people have just said :)

Master Vernon, without question.
Card magic wouldn't be what it is without him.
