|I think now that the printer is Wilhelm Hegenauer, Wien. There's a deck on e-bay--not the same images, but the same typefaces AND the same Chearing spelling errors in English. The one for sale has some differences in capitalization.
I am astounded that one can narrow down the publisher to probably one of two possibilities using only a book (Kaplan's sale catalog) and the internet and the minds of friends on the internet (OnePotato, Gregory, Morwenna, Langustl). Amazing really.
Here's the auction--item # 180232705798. Seller thinks 1870. I suspect the deck I have is from the same period. Obviously mine is/was a less elaborate production. The seller has excellent photos. Bidding stands at 3.50 Euros.
