With Marteau's book, something else comes to the fore: its title is now seen to apply to the style of deck by then virtually unknown except for the Conver Marseille model and its cognates. In that sense, Marteau appears to 'stabilise' the term in a more generic sense, even though earlier 'introduced' by Papus for a specific deck. Marteau's broad appeal not only makes the specific Marteau-Grimaud (Parisian) deck known, but the woodcut style accepted by a broad readership.

He never explained why he atribited the hebrew letter Shin to LE MAT,so he placed there.
This letter is the twenty one on the hebrew alphabet and its value is 300

[...]5-All the hebrew theory connection with tarot is around the 21 + 1
But here is just the whole problem :There are not 22 cards,there are 21 + 1
The LE MAT card is unnumbered as we know and just for this is impossible to fit the rules of Qabbalah pattern regarding tarot sketch.
