all the more so as I think the buyer is a compulsive collector not very interested in the history of tarot. I won my precedent historical deck for 1 €, it spoiled me. Silly silly I am.
I persist in thinking this yellow can't be from 1762. It has to be a print from the following century. The back of the cards and the 2 de deniers were not visible so very difficult to give a date.
Now I know it's Feautrier, I should have scanned the Chosson besides it rather than Conver.
A lot of details are exquisite indeed. I don't know how I vill recover from it
To assist you recovering from this shock be sure I will do my best as to get a fresh source of Feautrier deck
Feautrier is an interesting tarot of Marseille but not the best one for me.
So my priority are for two other tarot of Marseille decks and they will be issued prior it.
I think also that BnF uncomplete Feautrier is not the best exemplary to use.
This "yellow" version may not be the best one also to use.
I put all my wishes in a serious source that I will reveal if I succed to get it.
For the moment there is a possibility I study.
Bear in mind that I have about 14 tarots in project that I organise step by step.
This is why I decided to do two tarots per year if possible.
By the way could you PM me you contact details and phone because I have some additional questions for you.
Have a nice day,
