This is the first English translation of the original "Les Tricheries des grecs dévoilées" (J. Hetzel, 1861)

The classic “Card Sharping Exposed” has also been published under other titles including “Card Sharpers: Their Tricks Exposed or The Art of Always Winning”, “The Card-Sharper Detected And Exposed” and “Tricks of the Greeks”, among other titles. It is revered as one of the more complete treatises on card cheating at that time in 1882. The other classic text from that time is “Sharps and Flats”, published by Maskelyne in 1894.
