Offering readers an in-depth exploration of this age-old divination technique, the book is meticulously crafted to appeal to both novice and experienced practitioners alike.

It is evident that Prime-Stevenson has poured years of research and personal experiences into this work, making it a noteworthy addition to any cartomancy enthusiast's library.

A standout feature of "The Square of Sevens" is its focus on the Square of Sevens spread—a technique that utilizes a seven-card combination to unveil hidden insights and truths.

This ethical perspective adds a profound dimension to the book, elevating it beyond a mere guidebook and transforming it into a thoughtful exploration of the human psyche.

However, one potential drawback of the book is its level of complexity. While Prime-Stevenson's expertise is apparent, some readers may find themselves overwhelmed by the detailed explanations and technical jargon that permeate the text. Those seeking a more simplified introduction to cartomancy may need to seek additional resources to supplement their understanding.

Overall, "The Square of Sevens: An Authoritative Method of Cartomancy with a Prefatory Note" is an excellent resource for both newcomers and experienced practitioners of cartomancy.

[Transcriber's note: I have made several changes from the original text for this online text edition. First, although I have not indicated it here, in the original text the whole preface (with the exception of the word dukkeripens) is italicized. Next, I have changed all the sidebars to section headings. Next, the illustrations in the original text consisted of rectangular graphs and numbers, and I have made approximations of these diagrams with dashes and vertical bars. The Master Column illustration (Fig. 13) originally had shading in some of the rectangles, which I have indicated by X's. Finally, in the paragraph starting "Let it be minded..." I changed "Sex in Court Cards" to "Six in Court Cards". All other spelling remains the same.]
