First you will have to learn the Major System, a kind of phonetic alphabet (see table below). Then you must remember two sets of 52 words (one set associated with cards, the other with the stack-numbers). Finally you must make pictures by associating words from one set to words of the other.
The Peg System can serve other purposes as well: remembering all sorts of lists, producing effects of mentalism, performing exceptional feats of memory, etc. Here also, any stack can be learned and daily training is required.

2. Memorize a set of 52 words associated to stack-numbers
3. Memorized a set of 52 words associated to cards

I have been selling used magic books since 1994. During these 28 years, I was in contact with great customers, some of which with whom I had warm communications. It has always been a pleasure to supply books to those looking for them.
It’s now time for me to turn the page.
Our book inventory was moved to Bradbury Books, Kansas City, Missouri. The owner, Dan, has been selling new and used magic books since 1993, and offers a tremendous service to magicians.
Each week or so, his popular reverse auction goes on. New titles are added on a regular basis.
I thank you all for your patronage and I wish you the best.Martin
