~ Jeux de cartes. Paris; Acanthe, [1949].

2 sets of 54 playing cards (89 × 63 mm), together in the original parchment covered slipcase (140 × 90 mm) with printed label. Light browning, and the box slightly rubbed/chipped but a very good set, as issued.

First edition of Leonor Fini’s playing cards, reissued several times, but rare in this first edition by Acanthe. The set was issued in both single deck Jeu de Cartes and as here, Jeux de Cartes, a double deck format. The single decks were issued with just one joker and one blank card. Here each set is accompanied by two jokers. A very nice set of this early work by Fini, re-issued a number of times, complete sets of the original edition are now quite difficult to find. cf.
