Edmonton: J. Mead Publications, 2001. FIRST EDITION, limited to less than 24 copies as per Mead. Small quarto. Hand bound with colored front panel inset; A FINE COPY. In the translator's words "My commentary has focused on elucidating (within, of course, my own limitations) the mythical, mystical, and magical aspects of the text; and whether or not these be accorded, either in whole or in part, validity by critics, one must note that the very fact that such a commentary is possible at all, reveals that the text delves into significant areas of symbolic, mythic, and archetypal thought." 92 pages, indexed.
