Thank you to https://steve-p.org/cards/PLen.html for the information on this Petit Lenormand divination deck of 36 cards with one extra card featuring Mademoiselle Lenormand. This deck has a copyright date of 1976 and is in French with directions in French and English as well.
"Marie Anne Adelaide Lenormand (1772–1843) was a French professional fortune-teller of considerable fame during the Napoleonic era. In France, Lenormand is considered the greatest cartomancer of all time, highly influential on the wave of French cartomancy that began in the late 18th century. Lenormand claimed to have given cartomantic advice to many famous persons, among them leaders of the French revolution (Marat, Robespierre and St-Just), Empress Josephine and Tsar Alexander I. She was active for more than 40 years. After Lenormand's death her name was used on several cartomancy decks including a deck of 36 illustrated cards known as the Petit Lenormand, or simply Lenormand, cards that are still used extensively today.
This deck is the little brother of the Grand Lenormand (see links at end of page), but the Petit Lenormand isn't a subset of the Grand – none of the cards are common to both. The pictures on the Grand seem to be more classical and mythology based, whereas the imagery here is more about the everyday."
The cards measure 3.5" x 2.25". The deck and the instructions are in good condition. The box does have edge wear and more wear to the front and back. Do examine the photos carefully and let me know if you require more as I'll be happy to oblige.
Thank you for looking.
