"... Decremps wrote and published a series of books purportedly to expose all the tricks of [Giuseppe] Pinetti. The first book, La Magie Blanche, appeared in Paris while Pinetti was still playing there in 1784. The first book was followed by Supplement a la Magie Blanche Devoilee, Testament de Jerome Sharp, Codicille de Jerome Sharp, and others. ... they did have a devastating effect on Pinetti as well as on other practitioners of the mystic art, despite the fact that Decremp's explanations were largely guesswork. ..."
