age-toned in hue.

A deck of 78 cards with 22 majors and four suits of 14 cards each, the cards are numbered from 1 to 78 with the title appearing on the left and right hand borders. The top and bottom of the card bear upright and reversed keywords. (While I speak little French, English has borrowed enough words from it that I can generally understand the meaning of the keywords on these cards.)

Translated from French, the major arcana cards (also referred to as the superior 'Lames' in the booklet) are:

    0 & 78 - Folly
  1. Chaos
  2. Light
  3. Plants
  4. Heavens
  5. Person
  6. Stars
  7. Birds & Fish
  8. Rest
  9. Justice
  10. Temperance
  11. Strength
  12. Prudence
  13. High Priest
  14. Devil
  15. Magician or Bateleur
  16. Judgement
  17. Death
  18. Hermit
  19. Temple
  20. Wheel of Fortune
  21. "The African Despot" (yes, seriously)

Some of the major cards are recognisable as taro t archetypes, but more are greatly changed or wholly unfamiliar. Most easily recognisable is Justice (a woman with sword and scales), while at the other end of the spectrum is Bird & Fishes (which depicts just what it sounds like), Chaos and the Heavens, both of which have multi-coloured circular designs. The minor arcana (inferior Lames) are pip cards in suits of Batons, Cups, Swords and Coins, and the court cards (median Lames) are fully illustrated.

While Etteilla might have erroneously attributed the origins of Tarot to the Magi or Ancient Egyptian (hence the 'Book of Thoth' title) his deck was an important milestone in the development of Tarot as we know it. This is an interesting Tarot, ideal for the student of historical tarot, and for the collector of pre-Waite Tarot decks.
