TARO OF THE FOUR WORLDS. Sensational rediscovery of an original Trionfi (Triumph, thence Trump) Tarot from Renaissance Italy of 1571 AD! These Greek Mystery "Four Orders of Virtue" were described as a game in 1425 AD, but no images were associated with this early description. This series of eighty-eight Emblematic engravings were miscategorized in the Antiquarian book trade as "History of Art", since their engraver, Zaltieri, was in the great Veneziani school that included Tintoretto. Many illustrations throughout including all 88 cards. Divination meanings, history of the deck, magical theory, original written descriptions and mythology from C16th Italy. Easy to learn spreads. A unique and fascinating insight into the minds of the ancients
