The occult world owes much to Mr. Waite, for a series of competent and careful compilations that have done much to preserve the treasures of mediaevial and ancient thought. This contribution to the library is devoted to the Tarot, which he describes as "fragments of a secret tradition under the veil of divination." We are not at all sure that the Tarot was intended primarily for divination, and still less for the usually base purpose of the fortune teller. No mechanical device can be of much avail in divination, unless the operator already possesses some measure of psychic vision, and needs no more than an exterior aid to mental concentration. In such cases the Tarot cards are of service. The study is a fascinating one from the academic point of view, and nothing could be more complete than Mr. Waite's condensed and yet exhaustive survey of our available knowledge. It may be said, too, that his inclination is always toward the higher and spiritual interpretation. There are 78 excellent plates.
