Caleb Bartlett

Old Sturbridge Village reproduction deck. The original, with illustrated courts and non-standard pip colours, was first compiled by Caleb Bartlett but published after he had been taken over by Abbot & Ely, as mentioned on the ace of spades, in around 1835 to 1840. The cards have a lot in common with other early patriotic decks by Jaz Ford and J. Y. Humphries incorporating historical and allegorical figures

See the Box

Caleb Bartlett also made a copy of Ackermann's Transformation pack in 1833.
