Cotta's Card Almanac 1811

Between 1805 and 1811, J. G. Cotta in Tübingen published six card almanacs. This is the last one published in 1811:

It was again designed by Gräfin Charlotte Jenison-Walworth. The name of the publisher is on the Ace of Clubs.

The cards do not have a common topic, they are intended as conversation pieces. The accompanying booklet gives explanations. The persons on the court cards are members of different fraternities. An exception is the Queen of Hearts as an Amazon.
