There is a great book by Rachel Pollack called The New Tarot Handbook: Master the Meaning of the Cards. It provides a comprehensive overview of tarot assignments and history from antiquity up to the modern day. It's a great resource for anyone looking to learn more about tarot publications before the 90s. Additionally, the book, A Guide to the Tarot, by Stuart R. Kaplan is worth checking out. It provides an in-depth examination of tarot decks since their emergence in the 15th century up to the 90s.
