I would like to know the originator for this beautiful deceptive sleight.

Thanks in advance guys.

Le Tourniquet? See Robert-Houdin for a routine with a candle ;)
Angelo Lewis (professor Hoffmann) translated the book into English.
Off to the lybrary unless you can read en Francais ;)

It's described in Magic Without Apparatus but predates that book I'm sure.

See the Dai Vernon "BOOK OF MAGIC" for Dai's essay on the French Drop.
