A French Mystery

We recently were brought a French magazine from special collections. It was missing its cover and any identifying information. By looking up the advertisements at hprints.com, we were able to figure that this issue was circa 1946. From the data we collected from hprints.com, we were able to catalog 18 advertisements with a fair amount of accuracy. (c.1946). Zenith: La Qualité a la Conquête du Monde. Color lithograph. Watch advertisement.

Also in this magazine was a feature on Tarot Cards. We cataloged 22 images of 4 different tarot decks.

Tarot images clockwise from top left:

(1381). Tarots dits de Charles VI. Le Mort.

(1491). Cartes Des Province Françaises.

(13th Century). Jeu de Tarots Suisse au Portrait Italien. Le Bateleur.

(15th Century). Jeu Delle Minchiate Tarot Florentin. Cavelier de Denier.
