Hello Ross, thank you for posting your list of sources. So Senftleben's list does not come from Volterranus but from Garzoni, sorry for misinterpreting that. I guess this is off topic, but does Volterranus say anything about tarot, or does he only mention card games in general?
Hi Marco -
As far as I know, Garzoni was mistaken to think that Raffaele Maffei Volterrano wrote anything about Tarot cards. The most I and many others before me have found in Volterrano's writings is the (nevertheless interesting) statement that "Chartarum vero & sortium & divinationis ludi priscis additi sunt ab avaris ac perditis inventi"
(Commentaria Urbana (Rome, 1506), I. xxix (f. 421v))
(To the ancient games have been added those of cards and of lots and of divination, invented by covetous and dissolute men - trans. Dummett, Game of Tarot, p. 389 note 2).
I learned since I wrote this list that Garzoni's actual source was Citolini, Tipocosmia. I'll get that up shortly.
