Golden Dawn Tarot Deck, by Robert Wang, is based on the esoteric and secret systems used by the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. First published over thirty years ago, it is the only deck to reach public view that was designed for the exclusive use of a powerful secret fraternity.
This is considered the deck that influenced some of the greatest esoteric writers of our age as they developed their ideas about Tarot.
Stuart Kaplan (U.S. Games Inc.) sees the publication of this deck as an important “missing link” in the development of Tarot. His suggestion is to study this deck along with other decks that evolved from the work of Golden Dawn members such as the Rider-Waite Tarot, (by A.E. Waite and Pamela Coleman Smith), the Builders of Adytum (BOTA) deck issued under the guidance of Paul Foster Case, and the Thoth Tarot, by Aleister Crowley and Lady Frieda Harris.
