The Tarot Shows the Path

London: Regency Press, 1960. First edition. 12mo, 127 pp, green boards titled in gilt at the spine. Illustrated with drawings by Paul Mathison.

First edition of Nordic's main work on the tarot, which was later reprinted by Weiser. In this first edition it was influential on the resurgence of interest in the tarot during the hippie era.

The book is illustrated with drawings by Paul Mathison, and these drawings were the basis for the Rolla Nordic Tarot deck, which was issued uncolored, so that each user could color their own set.


Near fine in the original dust Mathison dust jacket, which is very good with some closed tears and loss to extremities, with some light foxing and a narrow tidemark to upper margin of front panel and spine. Item #29352
