The oldest surviving Marseille-style tarot deck, the Noblet deck, was created c. 1650 in Paris. Its only extant original is in the French National Library, missing just 5 cards from the suit of swords. Noted French artist-scholar Jean-Claude Flornoy created and printed this restored edition of the deck, with the missing cards recreated in the same style. The late Flornoy spent decades researching and recreating the oldest Marseille decks: the Noblet, the Vieville, the Dodal and the Conver. His decks are collector’s items. Comes with a 64 page booklet containing Flornoy’s historical and iconographical comments.
