SCAIFE, Lawrence. Spotlight on the Card Sharp.
(Wellington, New Zealand): Albert Doney, 1933. First edition. 12mo. 67 pages. Scarce instructional manual billed as an “instructive warning to those who must play for stakes. Interesting amusement for those who do not.” The volume is illustrated with 30 drawings by Chas. Remmers (from photographs by the author). As well as cards, the volume covers tricks and sleight of hand involved in dice games. A very good copy, previous owner's name on front endpaper, in illustrated wrappers. First state wrappers without the four shilling price label over the original two shilling price.
