Gassman Tarot de Marseille & Guide | Linen Finish | c. 1840
This tarot deck, produced by François Gassman of Geneva, Switzerland in 1840, is a unique addition to the Tarot de Marseille family of cartomancy. While it shares the same major and minor arcana as more modern decks, it also boasts a timeless baroque style and original French names for each card. The full size tarot (4.75 x 2.75 inches) is printed on high quality 350 gsm coated card stock and features a linen finish. Made in the U.S.A., this deck is a reproduction of an original 1840 edition, but with a twist.
Seller's Note: This specific copy of the deck has been censored at some point in its history, potentially during the prudishness of the Victorian era. The previous owner painted over the nudity present in a few of the cards, adding to its historical intrigue. However, we recognize that some users may find this unappealing.
Despite this alteration, the Gassman Tarot de Marseille & Guide is a beautiful and intriguing addition to any tarot collection. Its unique history and classic style make it a must-have for tarot enthusiasts and collectors alike.
