Comment: Small but nice booklet of Himber Ring routines.
1 De-Luxe Himber Type Linking Finger Rings: advertisement for the
ring, and credit to Richard Himber
2 StaggeRING (Richard Himber): Richard's original routine
3 The K de C Triple Link (Ken de Courcy): Ken's routine incorporates three borrowed finger rings and a cord
7 About Rings and Things (George Blake): nice essay with some history and some tips
9 Ring, Pin and Cord (George Blake): "My Favorite Routine". The magician's finger ring comes off a cord held by the two ends by a spectator and ends up on a safety pin
11 Chinese Coins & Rings (George Blake): Chinese coins and a borrowed finger ring are secured on a rope with the performer's ring blocking the way off the string. Under cover of a handkerchief, however, the borrowed ring and coins are removed, while the performer's ring remains.
12 A Ring and Loop 'o String: a puzzle for the spectator to put the ring on the string (and take it off)
13 Sefalaljia by Hand!: a non-gimmicked finger ring on string release
14 BewildeRING! (Himber and Blake): an expanded version of Richard Himber's original routine
