This Bridge tutorial guide includes a 4 page supplement advertising Castell's range of Bridge Requisites: Caskets, Folders & Scoring Blocks.


Two packs of cards are visible in the photos, Castell's Pepys Playing Cards, referred to in the supplement's text as "Toned Playing Cards" with a Linen Finish.


Only the most expensive and the "De Luxe" caskets include other cards, "'Barribal Series' (latest designs) Gold Edge Playing Cards" or "International Club". The Toned, International Club and the Barribal packs were all produced by Waddingtons.
