London: Starfire Publishing, 2010. FIRST ENHANCED EDITION. FINE CLOTH VOLUME IN FINE DUST JACKET. First published in 1972, this new edition is limited to 1500 copies only. Bound in black cloth, sewn, illustrated end papers & printed on custom book stock. With a new frontispiece, a section of seventeen plates (many in color, some unpublished) and includes a 1954 unpublished photograph of Spare, inscribed to the Grants. A full-color dust-jacket designed by Steffi Grant. Octavo. 274 pages. When the original manuscript of this book was submitted for publication, the author was told he had provided "too much material for one book". This proved to be correct. The work here presented - in an enhanced edition - became the first volume of three Trilogies. It provides a detailed analysis of certain occult traditions which existed long before the Christian epoch, survived its persecutions and anathemas, and reappeared in recent times with renewed vigor. The continuity of this magical current as reflected in the work of Aleister Crowley, Austin Osman Spare, Dion Fortune and others is here traced through the Tantrik Tradition of the Far East, the Sumerian Cult of Shaitan and the Draconian, Sabian, or Typhonian rites of the 'dark' dynasties of ancient Egypt. Sexual magick and mysterious rites have always been practiced; drugs and other substances have constantly been used to induce ecstasy, to produce visions and to facilitate traffic with the denizens of other worlds or planes of consciousness; but an initiated rationale of the process such as presented here has been rarely forthcoming. The genuine magical tradition as revived by Adepts like Crowley is here related to its ancient sources and brought into line with phases of contemporary occultism that are evolving a New Gnosis to supersede the sterile superstitions bred of an aeon-long misunderstanding of the old. As a contribution to occult lore, THE MAGICAL REVIVAL and its companion volumes have become standard source-books in their special field. (Item ID: SF-RVL)
