Reprint of the original cards from 1799. By kind permission of the British Museum, London, edited by Alexander Glueck. The game was conceived by Johann Kaspar Hechtel and published in Nuremberg in 1799 as a parlour game. This is where we meet all the characters seen later in the Lenormand cards: the rider, the stork, the mice, the fish, etc. The booklet includes the historic game rules and instructions how to read this oracle today.
