Introduction by Naha Armady

Referring to it as the Book of Destiny, Antoine Court de Gebelin published the first documented essays on the Tarot in his multi-volume French encyclopedia Le Monde Primitif in 1787. The ideas expressed on the Tarot as a book of wisdom or mystical repository, sometimes known as the Book of Thoth, was quoted by many proponents of the esoteric tradition; William Wynn Westcott, Papus, Eliphas Levi, A.E.Waite, Paul Foster Case and Manly P. Hall among them.

This complete English translation provides an important text in the history and use of the Tarot to scholars and diviners of the western esoteric tradition
