The French Tarot Packs

The Tarot of Etteila is of no symbolic value, it is a bad mutilation of the real Tarot.

This pack is used by all our fortune-tellers. Its sole interest lies in the strangeness of its figures. it can be obtained for 5 or 8 francs from all the great card-sellers in Paris.

The Tarot of Watillaux, or pack of the princess Tarot, reproduces the minor arcana very correctly. It is worth consideration on this account.

The Italian Tarot, that of Besançon and of Marseilles, i are unquestionably the best which we now possess, particularly the latter, which fairly reproduces the Primitive symbolical Tarot.
