The Playing Cards and Their Ancient Origin in Atlantis.
According to 'The Mystic Test Book', a work published in 1893 by Olney Richmond, the playing cards originated in Atlantis and have since been used as Oracles by 'The Mystic Brotherhood' as well as current day card readers (see 'History').

The Order of the Magi and Olney Richmond
The playing cards represent a symbolic language, handed down to us from our ancestors in Atlantis. Little of the mystical nature of these cards had been known by the vast population until the publication of Richmonds work described above. The keepers of this knowledge called themselves 'the ancient order of the magi', and one of their aging members approached Mr. Richmond to informed him that he had been chosen to be his next successor. The story is truely fascinating, and for the full rendition I recommend reading 'Yenlo and the Mystic Brotherhood', by Arline Richmond.
This website is dedicated to the unfoldment of the knowledge presented in the Mystic Test Book, or what Richmond also called 'The Magic of The Cards. This latter term has great meaning for me, since after many years of using this system I have found that the cards do indeed speak to me. But it should be known that I do not use the framework of this system as a platform from which to speak about the cards, but rather the framework acts as a sounding board through which I listen to the subtle language of the cards about which I speak.
