xv century miniatures.

A couple of posts back I said that when the c. 1865 book said “imprimes en chromolithographie, a l'imitation de minatures du Xv siecle" it meant the Charles VI backgrounds. Thanks to Cerulean's pm referring me to a thread in another forum, I see now that the c. 1865 was probably referring to the miniatures of the Nuremberg Chronicle--or something very similar, such as copies of them. I stand corrected.

Here is p. 101 of the Chronicle, which has someone very like the Etteilla Fool in the bottom right hand corner. Then go to p. 112, 128, and so on, for a lot of the Etteilla III trumps (but not those of Etteilla I or II). All of this is discussed in detail elsewhere.
