Beautiful double deck set of Fournier’s “Ancient Civilisations” cards, with each of the 4 suits devoted to one of 4 ancient civilizations: Egyptian, Sumerian, Assyrian, and Persian. The cards have original designs by Celedonio Perellón, the great Spanish illustrator.
Each deck has 52 cards, plus 2 Jokers, plus an insert card. The set comes with a paper insert in English and Spanish that describes the decks, including a bit of ancient history, and has a map identifying the location of the 4 civilizations featured. The cards are wide, measuring 89mm x 63mm, with gold gilt at the corners. They come in the original box, a tray inside a sleeve.
The cards and box are in excellent condition, “as new” or very nearly so, with very slight wear to the sleeve at a couple of places.
