The Visconti Sforza Tarot Deck (Pierpont Morgan)
Price: $45.00
Number of cards in deck: 78

Measurements: 3.55 x 6.9 inches, or 9 x 17.6 cm. Very large.

Back of card: Solid orange-red.

Booklet included: Yes, 40 pages, 3.25 x 6 inches, or 82 x 153 mm.

Publisher: US Games. Printed in Switzerland.

Comments: Of the 78 cards, 74 are original, 4 are recreations. Of the original cards, 35 are in the Pierpont-Morgan Library, 26 cards are at the Accademia Carrara, 13 are at the Casa Colleoni, the last two both in Italy.

The deck also includes four blank cards. Cards are not labeled except for a tiny number or mark on the top center (I can't tell which). Suits are the original Swords, Wands, Pentacles & Cups, face cards are King, Queen, Knave & Page.

While reproductions of original cards, the originals are worn, presumably worn out. For an idea of what these cards originally looked like, see the Visconti-Sforza (restored) Tarot Deck, restored by A.A. Atanassov, which are the smaller, modern tarot size.
