These two sheets of cards are cards from J Lee’s Comic Lottery Amusement.
We have had the complete set (44)(as cards) in the original wrapper in the past. Pictures can be provided to the buyer of this item if requested. This is two sheets of cards (24 cards). There is some damage and repair hence pictures of the backs have also been shown.
John Lee was a wood engraver, working in Hatton Garden in the 1790s

Condition - Some damage as the pictures show, a tear that has been repaired on the back (looks more like a crease from the front) - wear at the corners of the "cards" (ie in the sheet) probably from where they were folded and a couple of small holes. The cards are colored and interesting - one states "Good luck, to this good company presents ten thousand pounds with J Lee's compliments" (long s used - so difficult to read initiallly). These sort of cards were often used at twetfth night parties
