Gauntlett, Edward (Introduction by Michael Staley). Shades in Mauve: A History of the Typhonian Tradition. [New York]: Von Zos, 2015. First Edition. Hardcover. Octavo. Bound in green cloth with gilt titles to front and spine. Color frontispiece. 104 pages. A fine copy, issued without dust jacket. Shades in Mauve takes the form of an historical survey of certain streams that have fed the Typhonian Current from the distant past until comparatively recent times. Beginning with the most ancient headwaters in prehistoric Africa, it notes the appearance of springs and tributaries rising here and there throughout European history. Emphasis is placed upon the artistic and creative nature of the Current; an emphasis not amenable to a purely academic approach. Kenneth Grant’s work forms a constant undercurrent to the discussion. The text leads out from themes that initially appeared in The Magical Revival and elaborates upon some of the topics in that first volume of the trilogies.
