"L'Etude du Tarot" by Oswald Wirth


"L'Etude du Tarot" by Oswald Wirth

Here is one of those books that simply shows up one day unlooked for,
and turns out to be a delightful offering of thoughtfulness and wisdom.
It would be my pleasure to answer any questions, and I also hope that
we might develop a discussion too, on one of Tarot's greatest authors.

I see a copy on abebooks.com...thanks for the various editions


I saw different titles and wondered if it was substantially different than Tarot of the Magicians that I have. A picture of the Aquarian title is the second listing below.

Tarot Des Imagiers Du Moyen Age (1927)

L'Etude du Tarot (1931)

*

We might also discuss the unfortunate translation
of the title: Tarot Des Imagiers Du Moyen Age.

It ought to be something more accurate, like:
The Tarot of the Medieval Picture Makers

*

Edited to add: L'Etude du Tarot was "translated" as:

Introduction to the Study of the Tarot
A beginner's guide to the symbolism and use of Tarot cards
by one of the greatest Tarot designers and Theorists

Fulgour-I see you have the Oswald Wirth deck- I presume the 22 Majors one? I have not been able to find pictures of the Oswald Wirth Deck-may I interrupt your thread and ask if can give me a site? Many thanks if you can ~Rosanne

The BEST
http://www.chez.com/alkast/

After saying "Hello!" to the OWL (wait or click on) scroll down to:

Symbolisme
D'après Oswald Wirth

then click on:
Le Symbolisme des vingt-deux clefs de la sapience secrète du Moyen Age

keep clicking on each picture until you get a full page image...
I recommend saving them to your pictures & making a folder

*

Also there are images here:
http://altreligion.about.com/library...t/bl_wirth.htm

*

enter "cards" in search, then use Jump to go to page 9...

Thank you both MoonGold and Fulgour. You cannot get an Oswald Wirth for love or money it seems- not the 22 Majors deck at any rate. Thanks for the scans which I have foldered now.... and are you going to translate the book for us Fulgour? Oh and Happy New Year ~Rosanne

This is one of my favourite decks - which I like to use the Majors from! I only have the LWB though! I have had to use other books which use his cards to gather a bit more info

Beautiful deck!! Though alot of the 'gold' on the cards has 'scratched/worn' and there looking slightly 'red' underneath!! Poor cards!!

Many Blessings

OMG - I got this book for $1.25AUD on ebay a while back, given that I'd picked up the Wirth deck for a song too. I haven't gotten to either yet, but soon, soon, soon....
