Researching a couple of points in Court de Gébelin’s essay which mentioned Aluette, I looked into the literature on the subject, and it may interest some readers to know that the classic studies on this neglected relative of the Tarot are now available online; the two early (and quite lengthy) articles by Dr Marcel Baudouin, and the more recent monograph by Alain Borvo, Anatomie d’un jeu de cartes – l’aluette ou le jeu de la vache.

Baudouin’s articles may be found on the website of the regional archives of the Vendée here: ... ype=simple
and Borvo’s book is available to purchase here: ... rtes.ebook
