The Herrmann Pass (also Herrmann shift) is a sleight used to control cards. There are many types of passes. This style of the move is different from the classic version.
It was originally developed by Alexander Herrmann (1844-1896) and one of the earliest publications of the move was in Stanyon's Serial Lessons in Conjuring. This is supposed to be Herrmann's actual handling of the move.
In 1897, a version was published as a turnover pass for the first time, by Roterberg.
