The Tarot pack of cards, transmitted by the Gypsies from generation to generation, is the primitive book of ancient initiation. This has been clearly demonstrated by Guillaume Postel, Court de Gobelin, Etteila, Eliphas Levi, and J. A. Vaillant.
The key to its construction and application has not yet been revealed, so far as I know. I therefore wished to fill up this deficiency by supplying Initiates, i. e. those who are acquainted with the elements of occult science, with an accurate guide, which would assist them in the pursuit of their studies.
The uninitiated reader will find in it the explanation of the lofty philosophy and science of ancient Egypt ; whilst ladies are enabled to practise the use of the divining Tarot.
