The Grail: The Truth Behind the Myth
Matthews, John
ISBN: 1841812676
Godsfield Press Ltd November 15, 2005  2005 
  8vo hardcover 176pp near fine. The real truth about the Grail, as this entertaining and informative book makes clear, is more exciting than the most fantastic adventure novel. Tracing the Grail's story from its earliest appearance in myth through history, literature, and popular entertainment, this comprehensive illustrated book explores the Grail's secret history and reveals why it continues to fascinate us today. The book unearths the earliest versions of the Grail in myth, examines the part the Grail plays in the events of Christ's Passion, and reveals the truth about the secret societies that "guard" the Grail mysteries. As readers will discover, the Grail also made a mysterious appearance in Arthur's Camelot and disguised itself as the holy bloodline of Jesus and Mary Magdalen, as the philosopher's stone, and as a touchstone of transformation for Jungian psychologists. The book also introduces us to modern Grail seekers and reveals why even the Nazis sought the Grail. This riviting account sets readers straight about the mysterious relic's meaning and purpose. As we discover what the Grail has meant to the men and women of the past, we come to understand the power of this ancient idea in our own life and why we continue to seek it.

The Aquarian Guide to African Mythology
Knappert, Jan
ISBN: 0850308852
Northamptonshire Aquarian Press, 1990  1990 
  Large 8vo softcover 272pp b/w illus. very good. This modest guide to African Mythology does not pretend to give more than an anthology of myths and mythological figures. There are many myths, legends and fables in the more than one thousand languages of Africa. In some entries a myth or fable is told as an illustration of the mysterious character of some animals, e.g. the frog. The reading list at the end of this book is likewise only a selection. The illustrations too, have been inspired by numerous sources. They represent works of traditional African art, some of them very old, so that in many cases not only the artist and his family, but his entire ethnic group have long since died. These art works are now safely stored in the museums of Europe and elsewhere.

Phaidon, United Kingdom, 1979. First Edition
 Hardcover Hardcover. Good Condition/Good. First Edition. ""The sight of people performing actions that seem superficially strange prompts an inquiry into not only what they are doing but why. In the context of folklore the participants often do not know the answer. They are repeating a ritual inherited from generations of ancestors, & often the explanations they give are garbled. By probing deep, however, it is usually possible to discover some grain of logic behind what may seem to be absurd behaviour or belief. Civilization tends to be a rather thin veneer concealing a mass of instincts & atavistic memories...A student of folklore encounters a number of strata of religious beliefs & practices associated with a succession of invaders..., all overlying a basic animism. A constant figure in ancient mythology was the Earth Mother, still remembered in the Corn Goddess of Kern Baby, whose image in straw is fashioned to celebrate the climax of harvest...In this book, the distinguished author of a number of volumes on folklore, surveying the field, attempts to inspire readers to look further for themselves, confident that in the quest they will arrive at a deeper understanding of human behaviour."

 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/. Reprint. In this book inhabitants of Atlantis and Lemuria come alive -- their hopes and fears, their achievements and sins. The submerged continents are described in graphic detail -- their location, history, flora and fauna, human inhabitants, customs, science, religion, and contact with advanced teachers. The information comes from the writings of Plato, from the esoteric tradition as set forth in The Secret Doctrine of H.P. Blavatsky, and from the clairvoyant writings of C.W. Leadbeater, one of the most remarkable sensitives of modern times. The result is a modern expression of a timeless myth in which everyone now living has a role. – rear panel blurb.
