To the casual observer, they're just a pack of playing cards. But to initiates, the mysterious figures of the Tarot deck symbolize the keys to ancient wisdom. The 78 cards can be employed to unlock the secrets of the universe and to foretell the future — but only by those who comprehend their esoteric truths. A pillar of occult science, The Tarot of the Bohemians provides a theological element to the work begun by Antoine Court de Gébelin, Etteila, and Éliphas Lévi, and advanced by A. E. Waite, the distinguished scholar and designer of the most widely known deck. Geared toward initiates, its topics include an introduction to the study of the Tarot as well as its symbolism and applications. This revised edition includes a Preface by Waite in addition to illustrative plates, charts, and tables.

Gerard Encausse (Papus), who founded the modern Martinist Order, was in his day (1865-1916) a skilled populariser of occult thought. Nowhere is this more evident than in his€Tarot of the Bohemians, an extraordinary, comprehensive and profound study of T.S. Eliot's 'wicked pack of cards' that reaches far beyond its mundane use as a fortune-telling device.€ In this highly readable study, as relevant now as the day it was first published, Papus links the Tarot with Kabbalah and astrology, traces an esoteric history of the pack, then embarks on a deep analysis of the symbolism of the cards. He concludes with seven practical lessons on how to use the cards for divination. The book as a whole is a must-read reference for students of the occult and likely to remain so for many years to come.

Gérard Anaclet Vincent Encausse (1865 - 1916), commonly known by his esoteric pseudonym Papus, was the French hypnotist, physician, and occultist famous for founding the modern Martinist Order. Papus's "Tarot of the Bohemians" represents part of the main literature of 19th and early 20th century 'Tarotism'. Within it, he maintains that the Tarot contains ancient knowledge from ancient Egypt, India and even Atlantis, while also giving basic instruction in cartomancy using the Tarot deck. This volume will furnish the reader with a deep grasp of the inner life of the Tarot deck and is highly recommended for those with an interest in Tarot and cartomancy. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.
