I went through the cards and found that those cards numbered 1 to 21 are the 21 Trumps + Fool. They are based more specifically on de Gébelin and Mellet but filtered through Etteilla into a mix of all of them.

I've listed them beginning with The World (ala le Comte de Mellet) - using the normal Marseille titles and order, followed by the Petit Oracle des Dames numbering, titles and the possible source (or a translation):

World - #1 (Voyage - de Gébelin calls it Time)
Judgment - #5 (Creation de l'Homme et de la Femme - ala de Gébelin)
Sun - #2 (Eclaircissement)
Moon - #3 (Propos - Intention, goal, plan, purpose)
Star - #4 (Etoiles Brillantes)
Tower - #6 (Le Paradis Terrestre - Expulsion from Paradise - ala de Mellet)
Devil - #7 (Force Majeure)
Temperance - #10 (La Tempérance)
Death - #13 (Mortalité)
Hanged Man - #9 (Prudence - ala de Gébelin/Etteilla)
Strength - #8 (La Force)
Wheel of Fortune - #12 (Fortune)
Hermit - #14 (Le Sage)
Justice - #11 (Thémis, La Justice)
Chariot - #15 (Dissension - Man in chariot)
Lovers - #16 (L'Homme entre le Vice et la Vertu - ala de Gébelin)
Pope - #17 (Mariage - Etteilla's card for the Pope)
Emperor - #18 (Jupiter)
Empress - #20 (Junon)
Popess - #19 (La Loi et La Foi - Law & Faith)
Magician - #21 (Le Bateleur)
Fool - #21 (double-headed card with the Magician)
Consultant/Chaos is #22

Now I'll repeat with the Dames order:

World - #1 (Voyage - de Gébelin calls it Time)
Sun - #2 (Eclaircissement)
Moon - #3 (Propos - Intention, goal, plan, purpose)
Star - #4 (Etoiles Brillantes)
Judgment - #5 (Creation de l'Homme et de la Femme - ala de Gébelin)
Tower - #6 (Le Paradis Terrestre - Expulsion from Paradise - ala de Mellet)
Devil - #7 (Force Majeure)
Strength - #8 (La Force)
Hanged Man - #9 (Prudence - ala de Gébelin/Etteilla)
Temperance - #10 (La Tempérance)
Justice - #11 (Thémis, La Justice)
Wheel of Fortune - #12 (Fortune)
Death - #13 (Mortalité)
Hermit - #14 (Le Sage)
Chariot - #15 (Dissension - Man in chariot)
Lovers - #16 (L'Homme entre le Vice et la Vertu - ala de Gébelin)
Pope - #17 (Mariage - Etteilla's card for the Pope)
Emperor - #18 (Jupiter - ala de Mellet)
Popess - #19 (La Loi et La Foi - Law & Faith - an original interpretation)
Empress - #20 (Junon)
Magician - #21 (Le Bateleur)
Fool - #21 (double-headed card with the Magician)
Consultant/Chaos is #22

Some of the booklet is taken directly from de Mellet (and probably from de Gébelin, too).

This is really intriguing!
