Basic book on how Tarot works and the ideas behind reading Tarot Cards. Translated from French. Quote "The Tarot is neither a 'popular' nor 'do-it-yourself' manual, but is written with that simple desire to hand on true knowledge which is the hallmark od great esotericists." "Esoteric knowledge is knowledge that is secret or not generally known. Historically, esoteric knowledge is not generally known in large part because it is deliberately kept secret from those outside a select group. Such knowledge was confined within certain disciplines, such as magic and freemasonry." ~From

Interesting read. A little over my head though. The book was passed down by my great-aunt.
