Whist pack from Lübeck

This pack was most probably made around 1870 in Lübeck. I do not know the exact date nor the maker.
Update: I have recently found out that the pack was really made in Lübeck, by A. Mertelmeier.

The pack was extensively used as a fortune telling pack. You can see the texts on each card, and there are also texts on the pip cards.

The King of Clubs is missing from my pack, I have replaced it with a picture from my archives (from a probably older pack which was not used for fortune telling).
