My first - and still one of my favorite "general" (that is, not specifically focused on Tree of Life correlations or tied to a particular deck) tarot book was "The Tarot" by Richard Cavendish, published in 1975 and reprinted in 1986. It covers History, Interpretation and Divination in three sub-sections and is a highly readable yet scholarly primer for those interested in the disputed origins of the cards, the key figures involved in its emergence from the Middle Ages, and the Victorian-era hermetic and qabalistic revival.
