“The New Game of Animals”
This Victorian card game consists of eleven sets of cards and is a spelling game played like Happy Families. Each card contains an imaginatively designed letter which spells the name of an animal, with one card representing the animal spelt. The design for each letter makes it fairly obvious to which animal it belongs. There is also one card containing all the animals. The animal names contain three, four or five letters.
The artist's signature appears which reads: “J. Lucy Hulbert, 1878”. An extra card contains the Rules of the Game→
