### Re: Origin of the Grand Etteilla II lower panels...

Thanks for all your additional research and links! I have all the books except Salette's Dictionnaire synonimique du livre de Thot , and would be interested in a copy when/if available. SteveM [aka: Kwaw, Koy Deli] I also have a couple different copies of Joubert de La Salette's Dictionnaire synonim...

### Re: Mellet: Research on the Tarot

I didn't mean three completely separate readings. I meant three "sentences" in answer to the same question for the same querent. Using what he says about the Piquet as a guide I think that: The trumps (letters) are shuffled and re-cut each time one is laid down in the sentence; The suit cards, howe...

### Re: Mellet: Research on the Tarot

I have thought some more about the procedure. When de Mellet says "Finally, the suit cards will be run through three times thoroughly with the same attention" I think he means the same as in the case of the Piquet deck, i.e. that the whole operation he has just described will be run through three t...

### Re: Mellet: Research on the Tarot

Let me rephrase to see if I understand. First you divide the cards into trumps and suit cards. Then you shuffle each pile. Then you turn over the top trump card, exposing it to view and for possible inclusion in the reading. Then you turn over the top card in the suits pile, saying "one" as you do ...

### Re: Mellet: Research on the Tarot

As the cards are turned you count from 1 - 14 (or, ace to ten, page, knight, queen, king). If the card turned from the four suits pack matches, then it and the trum...

### Re: Mellet: Research on the Tarot

Thanks Mike - re IOU -yes, it is the Etruscan form of Jove, I have added a note. I still have no idea how the cards to be interpreted are selected from the deck, so I am unable to offer much in the way of correction to that part. Do you mean when using the tarot pack or the piquet? The piquet method...

### Re: Dammartin: Caractères alphabétiques

I forget the exact method for finding it... I'll check my search history to see the combination of words. I'd appreciate that - if something is online I am usually quite adept at finding it, obviously my little search tricks did not work for me this time, if you have the search terms & engine I'd a...

### Re: Dammartin: Caractères alphabétiques

I can see where Levi got his inspiration for the Tarot, after his socialist revolutionary days. As we discussed some time before (on f/b history forum?) - I think many of the ideas from his (Christian) socialist revolutionary days, that got him imprisoned at least 3 times, are still there beneath h...

### Re: Dammartin: Caractères alphabétiques

Oh wow! Thanks Ross! How did you find it? Obviously got to update my search skills, tried all the tricks I know and couldn't find it. Thank you Thank you Thank you! :D Where did you get that clean Bateuleur picture, Steve? I can't find it on Gallica. It was from a c.late 1830's review of the book in...
