The Tarot. Its Occult Signification, Use in Fortune-Telling, and Method of Play, Etc.

New York, NY: Occult Research Press [ Samuel Weiser Publishing ], ND [ Circa 1950s ]. First Edition Thus. Softcover. Octavo. 62pp. Stapled in textured blue wrappers illustrated (Hanged Man) and titled in black. Mathers' study of the tarot (apparently based on the Marseilles Deck) in which he argued strongly for the Egyptian origin of the cards. This original edition was Mathers' second published book on occult subjects: it came out in 1888, the same year in which he, Westcott, and Woodman founded the Golden Dawn. The Occult Research Press, which published this reprint, was the imprint used by Samuel Weiser when he first ventured into publishing, though only a few titles appeared under that name before it was changed to Samuel Weiser Publishing by the early 1960s. Wrappers overall somewhat darkened, Aquarian Books ink stamp at bottom of title page. Overall, a tight, unmarked VG+ copy. Scarce. Item #69689
