Comments

"This book traces for the first time the long and surprising pedigree of the British Pack of Playing Cards. Familiar as these cards are, few people have any idea of the strange secrets which they conceal. These are fully explained and a treasure-house of folk-lore, romance, anecdote and legend is opened to the reader." (from jacket front panel).
