FILL--IPINESS, I just checked "Bibliographie des ouvrages de tricherie" and this book was written by no other than Daniel Rhod. Seriously you have to be kidding us.
Daniel Rhod is already a failure as a magician (ah) and it's not surprising that we would qualify his book as "the most important ever published [...] in french" as the guy manages to have in his own book (on magic) "an exclusive interview" of himself.
By citing Rhod you lost any credibility ... even though you already had none from the content of your previous posts.

I wonder why you're bashing Rhod. He seems to have compiled quite a serious list of gambling related books.

I'm not really sure Rhod can be trusted as a real-cheating-moves expert but, anyway, he made a nice work compiling all the sources provided in his booklet an the magazine quoted above.

The booklet is "Bibliographie des ouvrages de tricheries aux cartes & dans les casinos" and his 48 pages in length. Of course, he describes very old texts and documents mainly, but is worth to read. But I need to warn you, you must understand french and sometimes ancient french Smile.

H2o, I did so because I'm familiar with "his work" as a magician. It might be a good bibliography still he is no expert when it comes to card handling.

H2o , for pictures I would recommend the old catalogs anytime instead of the Amazon book.

If "everyone knows about them" as you said , that's a good sign they're really worth.

Matu ,

So , what's your point ?

One doesn't need to be a good magician to write a chronology of gambling/card cheating books , his skills as a magician or any aspect of his personal life is totally irrelevant to this discussion.

The thing is that you didn't answer the original question h20 asked you: " books about this gambling collectibles". Nobody asked you about cheating books.
I guess my point was that you tried to speak with authority on gambling books and the only one you could come up with was a book written by a French magician (of disputable qualification) only available through French magic websites... nice try but hardly a neo-classic.
I guess if you didn't sound so full of yourself it wouldn't have mattered.

I didn't try to speak with authority , people asked about french books and I recommended one which contains a vast list of french books , from 1489 till 1999 , I could write down every title here but as I said it would take too much time.

Again , about Daniel Rhod , if he isn't skilled as a magician, if his booklet is hardly a neo-classic , blah , blah , blah .......all this is totally irrelevant here.
