Excellent set of Fournier’s “Nuego Juego del Tarot” (“New Game of Tarock”), called by Fournier “Tarot of the Alps,” so named because the major arcana have photographs of the Alpine region. The court cards and Fool card show persons in regional Alpine costumes of the 19th century.
The set has the usual 78 cards, plus 2 extra cards introducing the set, plus a paper insert with the rules of the game of tarock. The cards are standard tarot size, measuring 110mm x 60mm, and come in the original box.
The cards and instructions are in excellent condition, “as new” or very nearly so. The box is in very good condition, structurally sound and reasonably clean, but with wear at the edges.
