The "Master Speller": A Modern Card Miracle Using a Borrowed and Unarranged Pack of FIfty-Two Cards by Victor Farelli

"The magician who never received a hint or suggestion for a magical effect from any other source than his own brain and claims to base his work on a principle, or principles, before unknown, is the Seventieth Wonder of the World.”

"Originality is not necessarily creative: it is more the adaptation or rearrangement of something seen or heard and retained in the subconscious brain and brought out in a different form or manner.” — The late Dr. A.M. Wilson in "The Sphinx” (May,1929).
