"Art Book series" produced by Adam Mclean. Of this volume, McLean says: "In the first decade of the sixteenth century Thomas Murner created the first ever educational card game, the Card Game of Logic which was printed as woodcut illustrations in his book Logica Memorativa Chartiludium Logice, sive totius Dialectice memoria, Strasburg, 1509. This was essentially a set of cards each bearing emblems and symbols which acted as a memory aid, or a teaching tool for the standard system of medieval logic, codified by the thirteenth century writer Peter of Spain in his Tractatus. Murner's book contains 51 woodcuts using the imagery of playing cards. It is not a conventional pack of cards as there are a number of different "suits" - those being Bells, Lobsters, Fish, Acorns, Scorpions, Crowns and Hearts."
