Samuel Weiser, 1969. The highly prized “White Box B” edition of Aleister Crowleys Thoth tarot. Both the outer white and inner gold box and deck itself are all in very good condition with only mild to moderate wear/soiling consistent with the age of the deck. Cards themselves are in great condition with no creases/folds. A Very Good Plus deck.
