Tax stamp isn't that clear, but clear enough I think to see that it is the 'RÉPUBLIQUE FRANÇAISE DÉCRET DU 12 AVRIL 1890' that was in use between 1890 to 1917, and from 1922 to 1940 - so maybe came out at the same time as the book 1939?

F.Rolt-Wheeler also published a three volume work on tarot/cabbalah:

Which inspired Nice based artist Micheal Bellon's tarot (1980), which is dedicated to F.R-W:
