Mint set of a 1969 Grimaud reprint of Lenormand fortune cards first made after Lenormand’s death in 1845. In this English language edition the cards go by the name “Astro Mythological Game by Mlle. Lenormand”; there is a 1962 edition in French, “Grand Jeu de Melle. Lenormand,” and both editions were reprinted by Grimaud in subsequent years. Imitation sets have been made by other makers, in Russia and elsewhere.

The set has 52 reading cards in the Lenormand style, each with an inset playing card, with the inset cards making a complete 52-card deck. In addition there are 2 extra cards, one male and one female, representing the person being read to. The cards are accompanied by a 172-page book in English that describes the set and the games that can be played with it. The cards are large and wide, even for fortune/tarot type cards, measuring 129mm x 89mm, and, with the book, come in the original box.

The cards are mint in their wrapper. The book is “as new” and the box has modest shelf wear.

Thanks for visiting.
