We bought the first deck four weeks ago and it arrived in pristine condition. Perfect for any Tarot collector. The cards, however, are glorious.


And we have been doing readings with the cards. Tzrot, we just bought a second deck for the collection and will keep doing readings with this gorgeous and unique divination tool. Subsequently we have had some email exchanges with the seller. They answer promptly and administer white-glove customer service with every email.

I highly recommend this deck. One person found this helpful. The Etteilla deck dates from the late 18th century, and was the first Tarot deck specifically intended for occult use. Prior to that, Tarot decks were primarily used for card games like Tarocchi, a card game similar to bridge. This was before Roma people, who came from India and not Egypt, arrived in Europe.

In addition, Roma fortune-telling uses ordinary playing cards, not the Tarot deck. Developed by wigmaker-turned-occultist Jean-Baptiste Alliette, who reversed his last name to become “Etteilla,” the deck was unabashedly oriented toward fortune-telling.


The cards of the Etteilla deck are numbered 1 to 78, leaving no option for alternate ordering.

The first 21 cards correspond roughly to the Major Arcana, although in no particular order, and with several differences. The first card is labeled “Etteilla” and reversed “The Male Consultant,” and depicts a sun shining through clouds. The second card, entitled, “Enlightenment,” has an image vaguely reminiscent of the “Sun” card of a standard Tarot deck.

Number 3, “Discussion,” resembles the “Moon” card; others, like number 7, “Support,” show a number of sea animals and don’t correspond to any standard Major. This pattern continues until number 22, which begins the four suits of the Minor Arcana, ordered from King down to Ace; the numbered cards with the efteilla of the Two card in each suit are pips.

Etteklla 78 is entitled stteilla with an image similar to the standard “Fool” card – if one views the deck as a circle, this could also be the first card. The instruction book doesn’t bother with “spreads;” it recommends shuffling the deck, then taking five cards at a time and turning the fifth face upward until 33 to 45 cards are revealed; how this would be done with a 78 card deck without going through it multiple times is not explained.

Predictions are revealed by the seventh, fourteenth, twenty-first, and so on. Today, “fortune-telling” is considered a debasement of Tarot, which is seen as more appropriately used for “guidance” or “personal development. We should instead strive to be “spiritually advanced,” which will lead us to make the correct decisions in life ourselves, without need for direction from any external source.

Etteilla’s audience etreilla under no such illusions, and he may have been the first person in history to make his living by giving Tarot readings. While this deck may not appeal to a modern person for that purpose, it’s nevertheless of interest as a significant milestone in the development of Tarot.

This is an essential collectors dream! I ran across this little treasure by accident in a dusty shelf of an old occult book store.


What a find it was. The first edition was printed in France inwhich is a reproduction of the original published just before the French Revolution! Hows that for a trip back in time for you Tarot enthusiasts? This is not your garden variety “New Age” Tarot deck.

Queen of Tarot

Considering when it was conceived and by whom, it is facinating beyond words! Looking back in time a few centuries ago, there was a time of the French Enlightenment.


Society, for the first time began to question the system set before them. Antoine Court de Gebelin was a free thinker and self proclaimed sorcerer who believed that Gypsies came from Egypt, Egyptian Hieroglyphs were the mystical secrets of the universe, and the Tarot held all of its secret, as well as the Hebrew Kaballah. In he was disproved with the discovery of the Rosetta stone.

He influenced some around him, namely the Wigmaker Etteilla, who refashioned the traditional Marseille into something unique and “revolutionary”.

Each card is Numbered The is no resemblance to any current deck. In fact, the were designed for fortune telling. Something a modern reader stays away from. At the time, the guillotine was severing the heads of many French citizens. A visit to a fortune teller was handy to see if you may be next.

In the sea of modern decks, this one stands out like a gem to the collector or a sore thumb to the beginner. In other words, if you want to learn Tarot, look elsewhere. If you do get a copy of this rarity, it could pay your monthly rent! See all 5 reviews. What other items do customers buy after viewing this item? The Book of Thoth Cards. The Rider Tarot Deck Cards.
