Thanks for the reply (and so quick too! :-)

I think they are 5" x 3 1/8"

That is what Beatrice listed them at. I really should measure all of their dimensions. I will get that in cm as well, since that is a more accurate method of comparing decks. I am wondering why some are rounded and others are not, and the back colors being different even though the pattern is the same. I know the Morgans were extremely careless with their deck printings but this makes me scratch my head. I was certain that the single border cards were older than the double bordered cards, but it seems that some single border cards are either newer or thought to be newer.

Also, I have pics of another Etteilla I was able to examine two years ago. It is more like yours, but I have to dig those pics out to get exact facts on it. Fortunately I am working on this site almost every day now, so it should be up in a month or two.
