Kenneth Grant (re. Austin Osman Spare) Images and Oracles of Austin Osman Spare, Fulgur 2003, numbered limited edition of 500 copies.
Landscape format hardback 12ins x 10ins, printed in red and black, frontispiece printed in brown ink. 104pp . Many illustrations. This work presents a cogent and concise exposition of Spares system of sorcery and Gnosis. The text is augmented with numerous illustrations, many never seen elsewhere. This new edition has a new preface by Kenneth Grant but then adheres to the format, design and binding of the original. However it should not be seen as a facsimile. This edition is immensely better than the first. Rather than merely copying a copy of the first edition the entire book has been reset, but using the original font. Where ever possible (ie almost everywhere) the original of the illustrations has been sought out and recopied so the images are immensely clearer and sharper. Myriads of tiny glitches have been corrected. A remarkable testament to the dedication to high standards of production that this publisher has championed. A highly recommended book that has an historic significance in the development of modern occultism Mint in Mint DW Order No. 71026 #90
