BOOK OF THOTH TAROT REVIEW
Guide of Thoth Etteilla Tarot, a recreation of a 19th-century tarot deck, is based on the deck created by Etteilla. He was the first to create a deck that was exclusively for divinatory purposes.
Jean Francois Alliette is more well-known to us as his pseudonym Etteilla. He was an important number in the development of the modern-day Tarot. He published the first publication that was recognized and focused on the divinatory use of the Tarot. He also created the first collection of Tarot cards specifically for occult and divinatory purposes.
While only a few cards remain from Etteilla’s original deck, it served as a template for later versions created by his students. Lo Scarabeo, the guide of Thoth Etteilla Tarot, replicated one of these cards, releasing it in 1870 as a ‘Grand Jeu de Oracle des Dames.
The 1870 deck is based on Etteilla’s principles and cards, but it differs from the original cards. It features medieval-styled images and also minor alterations to some major images. However, the titles and keywords were not altered. These cards are a recreation, not a re-creation. The art is aged and tonal.
