Deakin’s Political Playing Cards 3rd edition published by the wholesale stationers Deakin & Company, 45 Eastcheap, London E.C. and manufactured by W.H. Willis & Co, c.1888. The court cards are double-ended portraits of prominent statesmen of the day, satirising political issues, and the ace of spades and box have a design reminiscent of Big Ben with the title and maker’s name. The pip cards have miniature ‘triplicate’ indices in two opposing corners.

The packs were printed in three editions by Willis and Co. See  1st Edition
