The Magical Revival, by Kenneth GrantLast year saw the re-release of Outside the Circles of Time, and earlier this year a new Typhonian musical was released based on Grant’s work.

Now, on, Starfire Publishing has announced the reprinting Kenneth Grant‘s The Magical Revival in December 2009, a deluxe edition of which will be released in January 2010.

The Magical Revival is the first volume in Kenneth Grant’s Typhonian Trilogies.

From the press release:

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 vigour.

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.

The new edition will be limited to 1500 copies, with a new frontispiece, seventeen plates (some of which are new to this edition), and illustrated endpapers. The book will retail at £30.00.

The first 118 copies will comprise the deluxe edition, and will be individually numbered and signed by Kenneth and Steffi Grant and will retail for £120.

Both editions can be ordered direct from the publisher.
