Veni, Vidi, Visconti!
A clean, well-lighted place for the exploration, comparison, and discussion of historical tarot decks (rather than individual cards), and other historical documents.

This is a tarot with some interesting things:

-POPE: a flame (?) behind him.
-LEMPEREUR and LIMPERATRISE: two headed eagles.
-Big Star in LESTOILE like P Madenie, JB Madenie, Burdel and Schar.
-LE SOLEIL: wreath, (like in JB Madenie, Burdel and Schar)
-All the cards are TdM2 except LE MONDE.


I think another one tarot, classified as "venetian tarot" in the British M., is alsoJacquard & Coly:

Now its easy to see the details in some cards. JUSTICE seems crowned, and the axis in LAROUXDEFORTUNE is complete.
