Banyen's Description: 

Tarot of the Magicians by Swiss occultist artist and author Oswald Wirth was first published in Paris in 1927, and a Weiser edition was later released in 1985.

Long unavailable, the book is back in print in a beautiful new package with full-color pull-out cards reproducing Wirth's 1889 tarot deck. With a new introduction by bestselling tarot author Mary K. Greer, Tarot of the Magicians offers tarot enthusiasts and students of the occult an in-depth and authoritative analysis of one of the most beautiful and evocative of all modern tarot decks.

In this important tarot work of the Major Arcana, Wirth combines the imagery and symbolism from Alchemy, Freemasonry, Rosicrucianism, and the magical heritage of Egypt and Chaldea, and explores the astronomical (rather than strictly zodiacal) associations for the Major Arcana cards.

Divination is the mother of all our knowledges, all our philosophies and of all our religions. It is worthy of respect and deserves to be taken seriously... One must divine in order to understand and acquire the clairvoyance of which the narrow rationalist in his blindness deprives himself. This rationalist runs the risk of assuming the heavy gait of a learned beast.

As Mary Greer writes in her excellent introduction, “The Tarot tells us where we came from, what we are, and where we are going (past, present, and future)... We humans become artists in order to complete a Divine Work that brings order to human chaos.”
