Re: From Marziano to the Cary-Yale and the Ludus Triumphorum

Since June 21 I have rethought my argument yet again, and again, I don't know how many times, away from THF since I have already presented two versions, neither of which I now like. However since the end of August I have not changed much, so it is worth presenting again. It is at https://marzianotol...

Re: visconti and este books...

Excellent. I was worried that they might not be easy to accessed (especially for people in countries that block Google). But I see Bertoni is here: https://archive.org/details/bibliotecaestens00bert/page/n8 and Sabbadini: https://archive.org/details/lescopertedeicod01sabbuoft/page/n8 (This post woul...

Re: IPCS ... The International Playing Card Society

Huck: A juridic context was only advanced as one possibility, by an audience member who didn't know that "Bernardin..." was also there with the "1428". I do not know examples where Bernardino is cited juridically, much less any referencing 1428. Thanks for your full explanation of "calling", Ludopho...

Re: IPCS ... The International Playing Card Society

Thanks, Ross. I still have some questions, which I expressed briefly and may elaborate on at some point, but not yet. Thierry writes that his article about the cards in Turin is "Tarots et autres cartes du XVe siècle exposés en 1880 à Turin", The Playing-Card , vol. 46, no. 3, Jan.-March 2018, pp. 1...

Re: IPCS ... The International Playing Card Society

Thanks for explaining the difference between the two towns' versions. Perhaps you can say more about "calling for a trump". Not just any player can "call", I observed - most just "passed". I thought it had to be one of the "aire", too, that was called for. Perhaps you know more. I don't fully unders...

Re: IPCS ... The International Playing Card Society

Very interesting. The Sicilian game is similar to the Spanish one to the extent that one person, who has one or more of the "aire" "calls" (not the Ace, but a higher "aire" that he or she doesn't have) and the person who has that card knows from that action who his partner is. Or something like that...

Re: IPCS ... The International Playing Card Society

About my talk, the problem is that I thought copies of the paper were to have been distributed to the attendees beforehand. Instead, what they had was an abstract I wrote one draft earlier than the final one I sent out, containing things I had already thought my way out of. Also, I only had time for...

Re: The 2019 IPCS convention and the exhibition "Il Mondo in Mano"

Actually, you have to pay to get the Playing Card articles. Or join IPCS. If you just get their journal electronically, membership is 12 British pounds or 17 Euros per year. This year I actually went to the IPCS Convention, mainly because it was in Sicily, which I was interested in experiencing, and...
