Eliphas Levi (1810–1875) was the greatest innovator in the revival of Western occultism, most significantly with his great leap of imagination that linked the tarot trumps to the letters of the Hebrew alphabet. He set out his tarot theory in his book "Transcendental Magic," but never revealed its magical application. This was finally made public in 1896 when Dr. Westcott—creator of the Golden Dawn—translated and printed Levi's secret manuscript. It is this rare text that we are now re-issuing.About the Author:
Eliphas Levi has influenced many important occultists, including A.E. Waite and Aleister Crowley. His best-known works, History of Magic and Transcendental Magic are published by Weiser.
