Is this what you're referring to, Barleywine?

Yes, that's it. My copy was reprinted by Samuel Weiser in 1981, but this looks like a free edition. It's only missing the graphics.

Will be interested to know how you get on with your study of Thoth.
Thanks hopefully yes with some discipline.

along time ago i heard the name and couldn't forget it and when i made the bet to learn tarot first, thoth came into mind. so i looked at a few of the pics and was hooked. but my deck turned out to be little and german, and the book and I have nothing common. but i was determined. in the mean time i saw a few cards from tarot of the spirit and bought the book. Great Read. and then got the cards.

But i am still trying to learn basics of rws, but i realized i know more than I thought. and reading came a little easier than i thought, so maybe this time next year, I will be able to start working on thoth without the book of thoth. Also, vision quest is a thoth deck so i am not sure what that means? I have it on my gadgets and as cards. love that deck.

I came to the Thoth deck late in the piece but it's adopted me nicely. This deck has become my favourite and makes all the RWS based decks I have seem useless. I do not know why but there's a depth of meaning to this deck that I really enjoy and find it much easier to intuit than any other deck. It's also a lot more precise when delving into things like soul growth and journey issues which I never had much luck with in RWS.

The pips arrangement in Thoth is a lot more conducive than RWS to me. But then Magick is my first love and I find Thoth to be better aligned with magic than the other types of tarot. I had not thought to do a deck interview with this deck before. Hmm....maybe I need to do that now.
