Fortune-telling pack from Germany

These cards were printed by an unknown German maker as a sheet, possibly in the series Neuruppiner Bilderbogen.

These are fortune-telling cards, each with a text at the lower end. There is also a text on the pip cards.

The pictures used for the court-cards resemble those of other packs from this time, for example a pack made by LW, presumably Ludwig Wüst from Frankfurt/Main, a pack made by Johann Anton Steinberger, also from Frankfurt/Main, and a pack by an unknown maker.

The cards have been cut out from the sheet and pasted onto regular cards. The Jack of Spades is missing from the pack in my collection, the back is shown in its place.
