S.W. Erdnase (?-?)
S.W. Erdnase's true identity has never been discovered. Many researchers believe that his real name was "E.S. Andrews" which is arrived at by reversing the letters of "S.W. Erdnase."

He has written a single book in 1902 under the "Erdnase" alias that has become a classic on cheating at cards. The book is full of techniques and concepts that are still in use today.

In discussing "The Expert At The Card Table" Martin Gardner wrote "[The methods] are as useful today by magicians and card hustlers as they were in 1902. This book is still the bible of card 'mechanics,' and as much a delight to read as it was in the early years of the last century."

The September 2011 issue of Genii Magazine contained a very convincing 28-page feature that is full of circumstantial evidence pointing to the identity of Erdnase being Wilbur Edgerton Sanders (1861-1935).
