LIMITED EDITION of 951/2000 — MINCHIATE OF FLORENCE TAROT PLAYING CARDS (MINCHIATE FIORENTINE) — By Vito Arienti, 1980 — Mint Condition, Out-of-Print with Wood Box
A scarce, limited edition (of 2000) Minchiate of Florence tarot card deck by Vito Arienti. The Minchiate Tarot is a photo reproduction of a Florentine Minchiate deck from 1725. Long out of print and much desired by collectors of historical decks and those interested in the development of the tarot. It includes 97 cards; the usual 56 that comprise the minor arcana of the tarot, and an extended major arcana whose 41 cards follow the tradition of Minchiate decks. This special limited edition includes a solid wood box, two instruction booklets (one in Italian and one in English), protective tarot card insert and tarot cards. The box, two instruction booklets, tarot card insert and tarot cards have no wear and are in mint condition. The side of the tarot card insert states the limited number edition, 951 and the total number of editions, 2000. The 97 cards are all present — they have not been used, and remain in their original card order.
