Known as Tarocchi, or Tarots, the Divination cards numbered seventy-eight, and were without numbers—or pips, as we call them—which were introduced in Europe for the sake of simplicity, in the fourteenth century. Such packs are still in use in parts of the Continent, but the Western pack has gradually taken its place, both for the purpose of Divination and for playing games—in fact,
it is usual to speak of a pack of " Playing cards," a distinction that is hardly necessary nowadays, as it is not easy to obtain a pack of Tarot cards, unless one knows where to go for them. The fact, however, that we still use this distinctive name, shows that at one time the two kinds were in use side by side.
