Ask to the BNF an acess right to their own tarot desk and do ca comparaison.
Thomas if you are still under the public french system of research you
could do easilly. Pay the fee to the BNF (asking to your thesis
advisor the letter), and ask for seeing the document.

I have see this game at a temporary exposition long time ago at the
BNF, and by memory it is in their collection.

I do not know if gallica allow to search under the estampe. You should
ask to the desk.
