Tarot of the Magicians by Swiss occultist artist and author Oswald Wirth was first published in Paris in 1927. 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.

This Weiser edition provides enthusiasts and students of the occult an in-depth and authoritative analysis of one of the most beautiful and evocative of all classic tarot decks. It includes a new introduction by bestselling tarot author Mary K. Greer and full-color images of Wirth’s 1889 tarot cards.
