Great decks Jase! I find the Europe illustrations especially appealing. ;)

Do you know if Fournier released these simultaneously in Spanish, or were they only for the English speaking/reading market?

Eh :? :? i should be asking you that question :lol: :lol: . there is a Booklet/leaflet that came with the deck that is written in Spanish , English and French, so i`m guessing that this deck was released simultaneously

Hiya Dazzelguts :D
Not all the deck have them but most, the Chinese costumes deck has information printed on extra cards.
The Russian,Far east & Naval powers decks i have shown has nothing (probably lost)but all the rest have.
Of the decks i`ve not shown Fiesta Taurina & the nude in art has no information but Discoveries and Colonizers of America & American Civil War both have booklets.

Here are Some Standard courts from Fournier.

The Pack is divided into two, Where the suits of Spades & Diamonds are devoted to the Union and those of the Hearts and Clubs are devoted to the Confederacy.
The Kings,Queens and Jacks depicts the outstanding figures of the Civil war, The Aces represent some of the more important battles and the Fours are decorated with guns and the famous Ships. The design on the back of the cards was inspired by the insignia on the pro-Lincoln badges worn by the Republicans during the campaign for his re-election in 1864.
IMG_0003.jpg

The 4 of Diamonds shows Cannon at Fort Sumter - Captain Abner Doubleday pointing the first Federal cannon to answer the attack on the Confederate artillery on April 13, 1861. The cannon balls, weighing 32 pounds each, were of no avail against the well-protected batteries of Cummings Point
The 4 of Clubs show a Confederate cannon, used in the Battle of Gettysburg July 1-3, 1863.
The 4 of Hearts shows The Merrimac - When Union forces abandoned the Norfolk Navy Yard in 1861, they sank a frigate called the Merrimac. The Confederates raised it, covered it with iron plates and equipped it withs guns
The 4 of Spades shows The Moniter - The Moniter was built by the Department of the Navy for the Union to fight the Merrimac which had been restored by the Confederates.

A modern Chinese knockoff deck of the Fournier No.12. Faithful but sloppy copying of most of the design except the Ace and the back.
