Spanish-English Tarot

[La Emperatriz] [El Carro] This Spanish-English Tarot Deck is based upon a Liguria-Piedmontese Italian deck first printed in 1736 from crude wood blocks. The original deck is now located in the Museo Fournier, Vitoria, Spain. As was customary at the time, a ribbon on the dos de oros (two of pentacles) gives the deck maker and city of origin: "Tarot - Fabrigado por Heraclio Fournier - Vitoria - Espana." The titles of the major arcana cards are given in both English and Spanish. The court card names are given in Spanish only. The Spanish names for the suits are: Bastos, Copas, Espadas and Oros. Bastos are curved and Espadas are straight. A small roman numeral at the bottom of each numbered suit card shows its number and orientation. This deck is available as the Spanish Tarot (Fournier version) and the Spanish-English Tarot (U. S. Games version).
