Cool Rider-waite bibliography


Hello.

I'm looking for a bibliography (concise or extensive) about books
specifically devoted to the rider-waite.

I don't mean :
- general tarot books
- books about learning the tarot which uses the rider waite for the examples
- books which talk about the rider waite but only from ONE very specific
viewpoint (wether astrological, numerological, etc.)

I do mean :
- books specifically devoted to the specific rider-waite symbolism,
- books about learning tarot which also extensively talks about the
rider-waite symbolism.

I already know of the existence of the "pictorial key", ut it seems from
reviews I've read it's purposedly obscure and not THAT useful.

Thanks for your help

Besides the _Pictorial Key to the Tarot_:
http://www.sacred-texts.com/tarot/pkt/index.htm


(1) Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn's Book T
http://www.private.org.il/GD/Book-T.html

(2) James Revak's website, Villa Revak

The link for the webpages where, for convenience for comparative purposes, he catalogues the divinatory meanings of Mathers (HOGD), Etteilla and Waite:
http://www.villarevak.org/td/td_1.htm

The link for James' article on Etteilla:
http://www.villarevak.org/emw/emw_1.htm

(3) other works by Waite himself can be useful, e.g.
http://www.private.org.il/GD/

(4) Golden Dawn glossary
http://www.hermeticgoldendawn.org/gd-glossary.htm

(5) Hulse's _Western Mysteries_ (published by Llewelyn)

(6) Wang's _The Qabalistic Tarot_

(7) Crowley's _Book of Thoth_ (in print, or you can find it on the net) -- especially for the Two to Ten cards of each suit.

P.S.: Also check out James Revak's tarot book reviews at his Villa Revak website.
