Builders of the Adytum is a religious organization created by Paul Foster Case dedicated to spiritual attunement through study, practice and meditation in the Tradition of the Western Mysteries. Adytum is the Greek word for Inner Shrine or Holy of Holies. 

The B.O.T.A. Tarot Deck was created by Paul Foster Case with the artist  Jessie Burns Parke. It closely follows the Rider Waite Deck but Case felt it necessary to create his own deck because he felt that Waite deliberately obscures or omits detailed symbols in his deck which limit the true depth of meaning of each card. Also he believed that some cards were changed to include Waites personal preferences and deviate too far from their original  meaning. He adamantly believed that each student needed to color his or her own Tarot deck and refused to issue a colored deck; finally his students, long after his death, issued his Tarot book with colored trumps.

This is a fair, clean copy. Book cover shows mild shelf wear, the binding is strong and pages mostly clean and unmarked. The front page with the publishing info has been torn out, so there is no print date. But, there is no ISBN number printed on the back, so the printing is before 1970.
