Overview

Sir Cyril Arthur Pearson, 1st Baronet (24 February 1866 – 9 December 1921) was a British newspaper magnate and publisher, most noted for founding the Daily Express. Pearson was also active as a writer, and wrote a number of tourist guides to locations in Britain and Europe.

Of all the methods by which men and women seek to penetrate into the mysteries of Fate and Futurity, Cartomancy is one that can claim the distinction of having swayed the human mind from prehistoric times right down to today.

This is a short book on telling fortunes, primarily with a standard deck of playing cards. There is a short two-chapter section at the end about the Tarot. Described are several different spreads, including the 32-card method, the French and Italian methods, the Grand Star, and Etteilla's Tarot spread.
This book is important for the understanding of the Tarot and Tarot spreads, in particular the Opening of the Key Spread used by The Golden Dawn. In this short book by P.R.S. Foli, discussion of the card counting and pairing techniques used in the Opening of the Key spread are found in playing cards. The terse definitions of the cards and the use of relationships between the cards is also similar to the OOTK methods.

This edition is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and images of various tarot spreads.

    Only 69 pages the illustrations are either missing or illegible. With these flaws why four stars? I enjoyed the book very much and plan to try all the layouts. The meanings of the cards as he presents them are really interesting compared to modern tarot and other card divnation.
