This book is based on the works of Jean-Baptiste Alliette (1738–1791) and his pupils featuring an interpretation of the old tarots as a symbolic derivative of the legendary "book of Thoth" of the occult tradition.
Alliette produced a "reconstitution" of the original book featuring a new original deck with a different sequence changing several of the original tarot cards and introducing new ones.
This deck was based on the pre-Champollion fashionable but unbased "egyptian lore" of the time and was named as so. It spawned several versions which were widely popular in the XVIII and XIX centuries. It has a significant historical value, marking the acceptance of tarot cards by the occult community.
