New York: Von Zos, 2014. DeLuxe Edition of 40 copies only with signatory card, talisman, and a special exclusive ritual by Caroline Wise. A FINE COPY in matching slip case. Frontispiece of Kenneth Grant's Ex Libris designed by Steffi Grant. A new collection of essays celebrating the life and work of Kenneth Grant. Includes a Nu-Isis Ritual by Caroline Wise. Kenneth Grant was one of the most innovative occultists of the post-Crowleyan age. His influence in the second half of the 20th century was profound, and offered powerful studies of the work of Aleister Crowley and Thelema, a penetrating analysis of his friend, the artist Austin Osman Spare, and capped by the towering achievement of his Trilogies. The essays in this book are not meant to be a definitive answer or doorway into the complexities of his Work, but rather an interim remembrance and discussion of the man and his work by people who knew each well. 108 pages. Octavo. (Item ID: V-SBMd)
