Dear Subscribers,

I've seen a good number of illustrations of
boards for the card game Poch, but until now
the only illustration I have of a board for
the similar game at cards "Pope Joan" is
the one in Parlett's "dictionary of card

Since the time has passed, when good black and
white line-drawings were made, this illustration
is, if well informative, not very beautiful.

Does anyone know of better illustrations of
historic Pope Joan board in other books?
Are there such boards on display in any museum?

Thank you,
