hm ...

:-) ... do you know the proverb, that a Fool can ask more than a wise man can answer?

Further, I'm not interested in the problem, why a publisher put a stamp on a card likely to declare, that these decks shall not be used for the market

Further, this is a Tarot History Forum, and I'm especially interested in problems of 15th century, in problems of Minchiate a little longer, but not after 1725.

here is something to read, but partly complicated

This is easier .. though a little bit outdated

btw. "Germini" and "Gallerini" are other names of the Minchiate game

Here are a few Minchiate cards shown, which are older than those of the 1725 deck. This is fragmentary finding from - maybe - c. 1600, very roughly estimated with no security. They are from Ronciglione, a location, which had a playing card production privilege at papal territory.

Here is a Fama with Medici heraldic.



There is no guarantee, that heraldic designs were on all cards in a series. Likely there were often heraldic-free cards, and the buyer could put his own heraldic on the cards. It's similar with book paintings, especially for printing books. You have a complex decoration, but the "personal heraldic elements" are free.

You mean this ...?



Where do we have such a big river in Bologna?

... and this is from Florence

... possibly an edition from Bologna. Yes, indeed, the deck description says so.

It also speaks of the stamps.

What Does This Mean ?

These are tax stamps. They gave people permission to use cards, much like our liquor and cigarette tax stamps today. Without them one could/can be arrested.

Not too much stock should be placed in them other than if you need to date the deck to a particular time period, IMAO.

A very similar deck to that of the Ronciglione pdf is given in re-engraved form by the author Merlin in the 1860s. Merlin noted, that such a deck would be in the Museum Correr then.
