Here is an exciting new "historical" deck from Lo Scarabeo. If you found Etteilla's Esoteric Ancient Tarots fascinating in structure and symbolism, but thought the art stark and unsophisticated, this deck will be a dream come true. True to the spirit of Etteilla, the art retains an antique feel while being sophisticated enough to please the modern palate.
Surely one of the most fascinating and mysterious esoteric decks: the author, Etteilla (Jean-Baptiste Alliette) published it between 1783 and 1787, in Paris and Amsterdam.
The author stated that the game of Tarot derived directly from the legendary "Book of Thoth", a magical text of ancient Egypt to be rediscovered through these cards.
Reproduction of the Great Game of the Oracle of Dames.
Printed in Paris in 1870,
78 cards, 66x120 mm.
