R. Somerville (Playing Cards) has now been in business for nearly 30 years (established February 1981 as R. Somerville of Edinburgh) during which time we have built up a large range of cards and considerable expertise about playing cards and Tarot cards of all kinds. After 18 years of successful trading in the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, we decided to close our shop to concentrate exclusively on mail order. Since September 2000 all business has been conducted by mail order only from our new base in the south of France.
We are probably the world's most comprehensive dealers in modern playing cards and Tarot cards with a range of around 2,500 different packs which we sell by mail order to collectors and card players all over the world. Our range of books on playing cards and related subjects is also listed in the catalogue. If you find the whole range a bit daunting, there's general information and advice on a page called 'How to find what you are looking for' (see Help on the menu banner above). Enquiries for specific items which may not have been advertised are always welcome. Trade enquiries will also be considered.
We have now been offering cards for sale on the internet for approaching fourteen years (we first went live in November 1996), and the current searchable catalogue is the result of the second major rebuild since our first faltering internet steps! Quite a lot of our stock does not yet have complete catalogue details, for which we are sorry, but we are trying to get as much as possible listed and illustrated in a basic format and will then fill in more details as time and resources allow. Please bear with us!
