Bibliography of Period Sources --

The following list is a subset of the listings in A Bibliography of Works in English on Playing Cards and Gaming, by Frederic Jessel, published by Longmans, Green, and Co., London, New York and Bombay, 1905. (Library of Congress Z5481.J45.) This invaluable work is an attempt to list all references to games up until its time, including references in literature as well as full descriptions. I have excerpted all entries prior to 1700, adding comments in square braces. The numbers given are the numbers from Jessel.

(Note also that Jessel refers to several earlier works, including bibliographies by "Watt, Lowndes, Allibone, and Hazlitt". He credits these whenever a source was in one of them. Also, he refers to a "Bibliography of Conjuring by Mr. E. Stanyon" for more details on card tricks.)
