Thierry and Trevor-

thank you so much for the ganjifa references! I was sure there must be some 
games, not just a lot of intriguing art associated with them!

Chas-thanks for the Zodiac information. Indeed, my copy of Bell, purchased 
used, has none of the loose plates--but I'm really surprised it wasn't 
mentioned in the index, either. What else am I missing, I wonder? I figured 
the loose pages were simply usable "boards" for some of the games described 
elsewhere in the book. 

The picture came up fine from the link you gave 
(http://www.geocities.com/Yosemite/Gorge/3154/Zodiac.html), although backing 
it to it from the backgammon book page it still doesn't load. Weird. 

While you're in a fixing mode, you might want to know that the of the links 
in the table at the bottom of the page only "links" and "dice" seem to work. 
The others all bring me to Yahoo's OOPS page.  (Then again, maybe you *don't* 
want to know this.)
