Is this an original Key to the Tarot


http://www.ebay.com/itm/Key-to-the-T...p2047675.l2557

Scroll down the page a little to see. Bidding has ended but I'm just curious if this an original Key to the Tarot. Never seen one without the cover. The ad says it would have to be glued back on so I assume they have it. Strange they didn't show a picture of it.

It says Seventh Thousand - so not a first edition, but can't be MUCH newer than that. It's the little bitty one.

Is it a genuine article though? That's mainly what I was wondering but may not have articulated it very well in my question. I've never seen one without its cover so I wasn't sure if that's what they look like inside.

Looks like a paperback--not a hardback with the cover fallen off.
Eta: seller says the covering for the spine has come off.

By "original" do you mean 1909/10? That font doesn't look it. I have a copy of a Pam B with the original book and the font is not that style. I think that font looks maybe 20s or 30s. I'm no expert but...

Yes Debra, I see what you're saying, I missed that. It's the spine covering not a cover per se, as in a hardcover. Was it ever issued as a paperback? It says "Rider & Co." I thought it might have been cribbed at some point.

I think Rodney has one. I can't believe a fake would have had that Seventh Thousand thing on it....
