I was browsing the bookshelves at an estate sale a week or so ago, and noticed this little white box nestled among some paperback books.
The best I could pin down is it could be from as early as 1969, or from sometime in the 70's.
The cards are in excellent condition and the artwork (by artist Frieda Harris) is gorgeous.
If you are into this kind of thing head on over and check it out - it's one of those things you just don't find every day!
I'm currently reading Erfworld and different kinds of magic users are denoted by names like "Dirtamancer", "Thinkamancer", "Turnamancer" etc.
and their fields "Dirtamancy", "Thinkamancy", "Turnamancy" respectively.
If one endeavor to know the future by observing the position and movements of the stars, this belongs to "astrologers," who are also called "genethliacs," because they take note of the days on which people are born.
If one observe the movements and cries of birds or of any animals, or the sneezing of men, or the sudden movements of limbs, this belongs in general to "augury," which is so called from the chattering of birds [avium garritu], just as "auspice" is derived from watching birds [avium inspectione].
These are chiefly wont to be observed in birds, the former by the ear, the latter by the eye. i, 5] remarks, "the observing of omens has a touch of religion mingled with it, for it is believed to be founded not on a chance movement, but on divine providence.
If, however, these observations have for their object men's words uttered unintentionally, which someone twist so as to apply to the future that he wishes to foreknow, then it is called an "omen": and as Valerius Maximus [*De Dict. It was thus that when the Romans were deliberating whether they would change their position, a centurion happened to exclaim at the time: 'Standard-bearer, fix the banner, we had best stand here': and on hearing these words they took them as an omen, and abandoned their intention of advancing further." If, however, the observation regards the dispositions, that occur to the eye, of figures in certain bodies, there will be another species of divination: for the divination that is taken from observing the lines of the hand is called "chiromancy," i.e.
Now I know that's not entirely Erfworld-specific because I know at least one other comic (SMBC, link is SFW) who used "Vaginomancy". During the Middle Ages, scholars coined terms for many of these methods — some of which had hitherto been unnamed — in Medieval Latin, very often utilizing the suffix -mantia when the art seemed more mystical (ultimately from Greek mantis, prophet) and the suffix -scopia when the art seemed more scientific (ultimately from Greek skopein, to observe).
I answer that, As stated above (A4), all divinations seek to acquire foreknowledge of future events, by means of some counsel and help of a demon, who is either expressly called upon to give his help, or else thrusts himself in secretly, in order to foretell certain future things unknown to men, but known to him in such manners as have been explained in the FP, Q57, A6.
When demons are expressly invoked, they are wont to foretell the future in many ways.
