So far I only have a golden Visconti Tarot from Lo Scarabeo, and a reproduction Marseille deck of unknown provenance. I recently bought a mini Visconti which should arrive tomorrow.

If you mean pre-RWS...

Grimaud TdM (but it's the mini version)
Ancient Italian

and that's it, I think...

I originally thought only one or two historical decks would be necessary as a non-collector. Right? WRONG!

Flornoy Dodal
Flornoy Noblet (2014 edition)
Pierre Madenie 1709 (Reynaud 2016 edition)
Claude Burdel 1751 (Reynaud)
Francois Heri 1718 (Reynaud)
Ancient Italian Tarot

Non-historical Marseille/Marseille related decks:

Fournier TdM
Grimaud Ancien TdM (Current and vintage 70s editions)
Robledo 2016 edition
Jodorowsky and Camoin TdM
Trionfi della Luna

Yep, 'I only need one or two Marseille decks' somehow led to the above.

Time to update my list! Visconti heavy, as intended!

I don't know if my categories make sense, but here we go!

(I have a few of those Lo Scarabeo oracles and Lenormands that are photo repros, but they look to be from after 1910, so I'm not including them.)

ETA: The LS Lenormand Oracle (which is a clean repro of the same deck as Seven's Vintage German Lenormand) looks very Edwardian, which is pre-1910, so I'm adding it here.
