“Madame Le Normand’s Gipsy Fortune Telling Cards” bears no indication of date or publisher.  Its previous owner has written the meaning of the cards over the simple black and white illustrations, thereby increasing its graphic charm.  There are 36 cards in the deck, from #1: Cavalier to #36: Cross; tattered instructions in English and German were thoughtfully provided as well.  Marie Anne Lenormand (1772-1843) created somewhat of a vogue for cartomancy in France; a number of decks were named after her.  Here’s the box.
