In a magic/conjuring list on which I am active, there is a discussion of the
"Five Foot Shelf" of magic books, originated by mentalist Ted Anneman in the
1930's.  Someone has proposed that he got the idea for such from Harvard
Classic's "Five Foot Shelf of Books", from about 1909 - 1910.  Is there any
other origin of the phrase?
