A New, Unopened copy – Published by U. S. Games Systems, Inc. Originally published by The Rider Company (William Rider & Son of London) in 1910, the Rider-Waite® is one of the most popular tarot decks in use for divination today in the English-speaking world. This is the original and only authorized edition of the famous 78-card tarot deck, designed by Pamela Colman Smith under the direction of the occult scholar Dr. Arthur Edward Waite, for whom the deck is named. He described the art in his book The Pictorial Key To The Tarot, “The Tarot cards… have been drawn and colored by Miss Pamela Colman Smith, and will, I think, be regarded as very striking and beautiful, in their design alike and execution.”
The deck contains 22 Major Arcana and 56 Lesser Arcana cards illustrated in full color. Includes a small white instruction booklet.
