This is an old gimmicked trick in a playing card box titled "No. 1571 Demon Playing Cards Imported". The box has the image of a devil inside a spade pip. Upon closer observation, there is a peek window flap at the lower right of the box.

The cards inside are USPCC Steamboat 999. The cards are glued back to back on their upper and lower halves to adjacent cards and folded in half. As you close one card on its fold, another appears. The whole lot is glued to an unfolded card.

Does anyone know this trick and any history?

The Demon name and logo are associated with London's Davenports magic shop, although I am unfamiliar with the specific trick.

I just ran across on of these decks just now. They are still sealed. On the paper wrapper tht goes around the box, someone wrote A-H. The first card in the sealed deck is a Ace of Hearts. Any new info on this deck? It looks circa 1910.

Thanks,
Kevin

Sounds like a repeat color change? The pip eating spider, perhaps? See Billy McComb's "25 Years Wiser".
