About a month ago I made a request to Beinecke Library at Yale University, and to my great joy it has been granted :D

At last we have access to pretty fine (about 800 X 1,500 pixels each) FULL-COLOUR images of ALL THE 78 cards of Jean-Pierre Payen deck!!

http://brbl-legacy.library.yale.edu/carycards/default.asp
Enter the number '2466' in the' Recorded ID' field in the ADVANCED SEARCH, and behold...

Thanks to this, I feel something I've long been suspecting is nearly cleared up;
now it seems quite likely that the clothes of J-P Payen's BATELEUR too has 5 buttons on it, just like Jean Dodal's...

And I have got more confident that this deck deserves to be given higher place than Dodal as the earliest Tarot de Marseille I specimen...

My fellow Tarot de Marseille lovers, let's celebrate. Yell for Yale! :-bd

Dear Robert,
I am so glad it seems you are getting on well and you find the images interesting.
( In fact I was rather sure you would, though. LOL)

Love for Tarot is still a bond between us. Greetings to my friend in far west:)

regards,
Kenji
