The Illustrated Key To The Tarot: The Veil of Divination Illustrating the Greater and Lesser Arcana.

Chicago, IL: The de Laurence Company, ND. Reprint. Hardcover. Octavo.176pp. Blue/green cloth gilt-lettered on spine & front board with gilt oroborous design to upper board, black and white reproductions of cards from the A. E. Waite / Pamela Colman Smith tarot deck. Effectively a pirated edition. The work is actually A. E. Waite's "The Pictorial Key to the Tarot" (1911) which De Laurence stole, resetting it, changing the title slightly, and publishing it under his own name, rather than that of the actual author. Spine a bit darkened with some bruising and chafing to ends, pages toned, bookplate on front pastedown. One page has a few short underlines, otherwise a solid VG+ copy (believe no dust jacket issued). Item #63505
