Curator's comments: Each card has at the top a horoscope with a miniature playing-card on the left and a letter of the alphabet on the right, in the centre a mythological or fanciful subject, and at the bottom various groups and devices. On the two extra cards are figures of the fortune-tellers, one a lady, the other a gentleman in fancy dress.
