The text of this catalog is believed to have been rewritten entirely by Robert Cecil from Crowley's catalog.2

Some copies contained a loose invitation form to subscribe to to the production of an actual set of cards.1

Apparently at this time there was a scheme for an actual pack of tarot cards to be printed.  The catalog included a subscription form that attempts to raise a sum of £1500 for the 78 blocks to be made and packs of cards reproduced in color.  Subscribers were asked for a minimum payment of £6 which would entitle them to two packs of cards.4
