The Pictorial Key to the Tarot is a divinatory tarot guide, with text by A. E. Waite and illustrations by Pamela Colman Smith. Published in conjunction with the Rider tarot deck, the pictorial version (released 1910, dated 1911) followed the success of the deck and Waite's (unillustrated 1909) text The Key to the Tarot. Both Waite and Smith were members of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. Waite was very concerned with the accuracy of the symbols used for the deck, and he did much research into the traditions, interpretations, and history behind the cards.

  • The Pictorial Key to the Tarot is a divinatory tarot guide, with text by A. E. Waite and illustrations by Pamela Colman Smith. Published in conjunction with the Rider tarot deck, the pictorial version (released 1910, dated 1911) followed the success of the deck and Waite's (unillustrated 1909) text The Key to the Tarot. Both Waite and Smith were members of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. Waite was very concerned with the accuracy of the symbols used for the deck, and he did much research into the traditions, interpretations, and history behind the cards. The book (which Waite himself called "a monograph") consists of three parts. 1. * Part I, "The Veil and Its Symbols", is a short overview of the traditional symbols associated with each card, followed by a history of the Tarot. Waite dismissed as baseless the belief that the Tarot was Egyptian in origin, and noted that no evidence of the cards exists prior to the 15th century. 2. * Part II, "The Doctrine of the Veil", contains 78 black and white plates of Smith's illustrations for the Rider-Waite deck, and a discussion of the unique symbols chosen for each card. Waite drew upon the earlier Tarot of French occultist Eliphas Levi, at times retaining his changes to the traditional deck (as with the Chariot card, which both Waite and Levi picture being drawn by two sphinx, instead of horses), at other times criticizing him (as with the Hermit card, which Waite thought Levi misinterpreted). 3. * Part III, "The Outer Methods of the Oracles", concerns matters of divination with the cards, including a description of the famous Celtic Cross Tarot layout, which the book helped popularize. In 1918, an American author, L. W. de Laurence, published an exact facsimile copy of the book under the title The Illustrated Key to the Tarot: The Veil of Divination, Illustrating the Greater and Lesser Arcana, without giving any credit to Waite.

  • The Pictorial Key to the Tarot (De geïllustreerde sleutel tot de tarot) van Arthur Edward Waite is de titel van de gids die in 1910 verscheen ter begeleiding van de Rider-Waite tarot. Hij deed onderzoek naar de tradities, interpretaties en geschiedenis van de tarot voor hij in samenwerking met de kunstenares een eigen versie ontwierp. Waite was een occultist die de interpretatie van de symbolen op zijn tarotkaarten voor studenten wilde ontsluiten. Hij is hierin slechts gedeeltelijk geslaagd, waarschijnlijk omdat hij zich gebonden achtte door een eed van geheimhouding, en hij de 'geheimen' van de tarot niet zomaar aan oningewijden wilde prijsgeven. Het boek, dat Waite zelf een "monografie" noemde, bestaat uit drie delen: 1. * De Sluier (voorhang) en zijn symbolen (geeft een kort overzicht van de symboliek van elke kaart en van de geschiedenis van de Tarot) 2. * De Leer achter de Sluier (bevat onder meer alle 78 zwart-wit afbeeldingen van het Rider-Waite kaartspel) 3. * De Exoterische methodes van de Orakels (met onder meer divinatie met kaarten en de legging met het Keltisch Kruis) (nl)
