Hunting for pleasure was at first only for the royals and their noblemen. Today's deck refers to these days. The deck was published as "St Hubert's Bridge" by Philibert in 1956, probably printed by Draeger. The courts, aces and jokers were designed by Eugène Leliepvre. The courts look like they are double imaged, but there are two different designs on each side. There's an interesting bird-bearer on the JC.
