A Pack of Cavalier Playing Cards (1886)

A facsimile with explanations of a "very curious Pack of Cards" which used to belong to Lord Nelson and date from around 1660. The cards feature various satirical allusions to the politics of the time - namely the English Civil War and the following Interregnum - and, along with the explanations given, form (as the subtitle announces) "a complete political satire of the commonwealth".
