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.

The Mystery and Meaning of the Dead Sea Scrolls
Shanks, Hershel
ISBN: 0679457577
Random House March 24, 1998  1998 
  8vo softcover 246pp very good. Fifty years ago, in a cave near Qumran on the Dead Sea, a Bedouin shepherd made a remarkable discovery--a cache of scrolls, in Hebrew and Aramaic, dating roughly from the time of Jesus. Here, in hundreds of literary fragments, was a window into an unknown world--the world where Christianity and modern Judaism were born.Everyone has heard about the scrolls, but what, exactly, are their contents? Who wrote them? What do they reveal? Do they undermine the authority of the Hebrew Bible? Do they shed new light on Jesus, his sayings and his sacraments? Until recently, only a handful of experts could answer these questions, for only they had access to the scrolls. Now, thanks to the liberating efforts of scholars such as Hershel Shanks, the scrolls are the property of us all, their mystery at long last yielding to meaning. Here, in arresting detail, is the most complete assessment of the scrolls to date. It is a history of their discovery and dissemination, a summary of their scholarly interpretation, and a thoughtful meditation on their ultimate significance. Above all, it is an act of generosity--a great scholar's gift to the common understanding of the most important ancient texts found in modern times.

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.
