Rare Pre 1971 Rider Tarot Cards


A wonderful set of 78 pre copyright Rider Cards in solid blue box that once belonged to a rather infamous tarot teacher so the story goes, although I have no provenance to support this. Each card is lovingly written on so her students could learn from each card. Beautiful old fashioned cursive script is written on each card with a positive and reversed meaning. The court cards in the pack have eye and hair colour added in script to each cardThere is no copyright printed on the cards so this is a very early 1960s to 1970s printing. The outer box shows signs of discolouration, possibly from perfumed oil once upon a time. Edges of box show much shelf edge wear, the box is structurally very sound and without damage. The 78 cards are in perfect condition, they have that lovely rich print quality of matt and sit well on the paper not like modern shiny packs. There are two extra blank cards in the set, an above and below protector but sadly no instruction booklet. This is a rare and beautiful example of this early reprinting of the original 1910 cards. £90.00 with UK standard postage £4.00 International customers please email [email protected] for the best shipping rates to your country.
