"The Influence of Etteilla and His School on Mathers & Waite"
Appendix C - Correspondences Between the Trumps of Etteilla's
Tarot and Those of the Tarot de Marseille", by James W. Revak
on the world-wide web 
using the Decker & Dummett +Kaplan column, rather than Papus.
again, the most compelling thing about this comparison is the
two areas of resonances: A) card character semblances: 9, 10,
11, 13, 16, 17, 20, and 78;
Etteilla's Trumps' Resonance With the Tarot de Marseille Deck
 9 (Justice,    Jurist)      --  AQUARIUS     JUSTICE    VIII
10 (Temperance, Priest)      --  CAPRICORN    TEMPERANCE  XIV
11 (Strength,   Monarch)     --  SAGITTARIUS  STRENGTH     XI 
13 (Marriage,   Union)       --               LOVERS       VI 
16 (Judgment,   Judgment)    --               JUDGMENT     XX 
17 (Mortality,  Nothingness) --               DEATH      XIII
20 (Fortune,    Increase)    --               WHEEL         X 
78 (Folly,      Folly)       --               FOOL       none

B) the Hanged Man / Traitor / Hermit / Prudence entanglement:

## (Etteilla Card, Inverse)  --  Zodiac Attr. Marseille    ##
12 (Prudence,   The People)  --  PISCES       TRAITOR     XII 
          PRUDENCE is another name for   Hermit    (IX) 
18 (Traitor,    Traitor)     --               HERMIT       IX
          TRAITOR  is another name for Hanged Man (XII)
