WE ARE PLEASED TO PRESENT THE NEW COLLECTIBLE BOOKS: 





CULTS OF THE SHADOW

By Kenneth Grant,  with art work by Steffi Grant.

London: Starfire Publishing, 2013. Limited, enhanced edition.
List Price:$59.95
A fine cloth volume in dust jacket.


FROM THE PUBLISHER:
A new, enhanced edition of the third volume of the Typhonian Trilogies, thus completing the first Trilogy of Magical Revival, Aleister Crowley and the Hidden God, and now joined by Cults of the Shadow, making a matched set.

Completely corrected, and reset, and includes the errata page originally prepared by Chris Johnson in the 1990s which has been integrated within the text. The new edition also incorporates additional important notes and corrections from Mr. Grant's own personal copy of this volume.

Where possible, the original artwork has been photographed anew, and reproduced in color as the original edition was only in black and white.

Superb colored frontispiece by Steffi Grant. Edited by Michael Staley. Octavo.

Present-day exponents of these Mysteries have formed their own cults for the revival and promulgation of this Secret Gnosis. Among them are Aleister Crowley, with his Cult of the Beast and the Scarlet Woman; Charles Stansfeld Jones, with his curious Qabalistic researches; Austin Osman Spare, the artist who evolved his own system of sexual sorcery based upon ancient secrets of Witchcraft; and Michael Bertiaux, with his Cult of the Black Snake.
