Aleister Crowley (1875-1947), who claimed to be the re-incarnation of Dr. John Dee among others, lived in England from 1875 through 1947. He is the author of several Weiser Books titles, including Book of Thoth, Diary of a Drug Fiend, Magick, Book of Lies, Book of the Law and 777 & Other Qabalistic Writings. He was a poet, mountaineer, secret agent, magus, libertine, and prophet – was dubbed by the tabloids “The Wickedest Man in the World.”

If you are interested in this knowledge, rather print the book yourself or buy a decent version of it
The descriptions of the cards, broken down by trumps, court cards & small cards, does not delve into interpretations which may come up during readings, but with the zodiac signs, planets, colors, & other Qabalah correspondences, along with the allegories that explain why the cards look the way they do, and why certain things are shown on these cards.
Each card has a personality associated with it. They are considered living beings. So they mean different things to different people. No two people will read them the same. I didn't get all the information I would have liked, but I have a better understanding of how things work.
Aleister Crowley is a very colorful individual, and his knowledge of the occult is a treasure.
