Description

Excerpt from Telling Fortunes by Cards: A Symposium of the Several Ancient and Modern Methods as Practiced by Arab Seers and Sibyls and the Romany Gypsies, With Plain Examples and Simple Instructions to Enable Anyone to Acquire the Art With Ease

All the Old and many of the recent authors that have been consulted in the preparation Of this book have been found to insist that divination through playing-cards is to be relied upon as a truthful exposition Of the past and future and a veritable portent of the future. They desire to be taken seriously. The present editor has no desire to de tract from this position if it be a fact, nor does he know that it is not a fact. His part in this work is that Of editor, and there ends. Here he pre sents you with the results of centuries of effort on the part Of those who profess to believe sincerely in what they practice and teach, and leaves the reader to place as much or as little credence in the truthfulness Of their divinations as he chooses.
