Volume III outlines startling similarities between the Rider-Waite deck and a 15th-century pack, and features 7,000 cards from 400 unpublished or rare decks. A detailed chapter is devoted to the life and work of the Rider-Waite artist, Pamela Colman Smith. Each book in The Encyclopedia of Tarot Volumes I-IV is complete in itself, and none of the material is duplicated.
"A monumental work of research. Every serious collector will find the "Encyclopedia an absolute necessity."
