22 Arcani sec XVIII (Il Meneghello)
Ancient Enlightened (Sola Busca)
Grand Etteilla
Minchiate Fiorentine (Il Meneghello)
Minchiate (Williams)
Tarocco Bolognese di G M Mitelli 1634 -1718 (Il Meneghello)
Tarocco Italiano (Dotti 1845, Il Meneghello)
Tarot of Marseilles (Grimaud and Fournier)
Visconti (Lo Scarabeo)

I have a second Minchiate Fiorentine deck, but I can't recall who published it, and as I'm pretty much immobile with a sprained ankle, I can't go look at present.
It's all Brian Williams' fault that I have most of these decks, as I wasn't interested in historical decks until after reading the books that came with his Minchiate and Renaissance decks.


Now not working, so time rich and cash poor!

After saying I would never get one...I broke down and got the Visconti-Sforza yesterday. It's still not out of its shrinkwrap, but, it will be soon.

Only one Le Veritable Tarot de Marseilles (Hadar). And you know, I don't think I'll be adding another anytime soon.

What need have I of this, what need have I of that! I am dancing at the feet of my dog, all is bliss, all is bliss!

Truth is in the eye of the beholder.

Well when this thread opened I was intimidated by so many major collections, but now folks like myself are starting to post! I have:

Cary-Yale Visconti
Hadar Marseilles
Fournier Marseilles
The other Fournier Marseilles
Vacchetta (LS version w/ modern border )

&, I've just ordered myself a new Soprafino from alida

I don't see a lot of people with the Vacchetta deck, which is odd because it's so pretty. If more people had it, perhaps it would get discussed more (read: I could use some help figuring it out!!!)

This seems like a good time to bump this thread, with all that present-giving going on and as Rusty said in the first post "It's very easy to lose the historical decks among all the other decks listed on that general thread." - in Tarot Decks forum.

So, come clean and list your Historical decks, including "photoreproductions of pre-1901 tarot decks, as well as modern recreations or restorations of historical decks (e.g., Grimaud, Camoin-Jodorowsky, Fournier, Hadar, etc.)."

I'll be back later to update my list and add a few!
