The republishing of the enhanced editions of the Typhonian Trilogies continues with the release of the seventh volume in the series, OUTER GATEWAYS, which opens the third and final trilogy. The Typhonian Tradition discussed in this book matured and declined before even the monumental phase of the earliest civilizations though remaining in the magical and mystical lore once current in Egypt, and the Far East, and in the later alchemical writings in the West, and in the Eastern Tantric tradition. The earliest themes of Grant's series of Trilogies are emphasized and developed in this volume with material on the unearthly provenance of such disturbing messages as 'The Necronomicon' is reaffirmed, which leads into a discussion of Crowley's reception of 'The Book of the Law', and a reinterpretation of that book's implications in the light of the Typhonian Tradition. The volume concludes with the haunting transmission--Wisdom of S'lba--received in New Isis Lodge under circumstances outside usually accepted magical procedures. NEW book, Fine in fine dust jacket.
