The book deals with the bicentennial history of the Munich branch of the cardmaker family Fetscher from the end of the 17th to the end of the 19th century. The Fetscher family was greatly widespread, yet its Munich line was the most successful. The authors describe 42 decks (including one by Wolfgang Scheidl from Regensburg): 14 with German suits, 25 with French suits, of which 9 tarot packs, and 3 games of the witch (or cuckoo). They come from private collections and museums, 11 alone from the British Museum, but also from the Deutsches Spielkartenmuseum in Leinfelden, and much else. The book is as always splendidly designed, it is housed in a nice and sturdy egg yolk yellow cloth binding. „Studien zur Spielkarte“ (Playing card studies) No. 29.
Handwritten dedication by one of the authors on title, almost as new.
