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.

Tristan
Closs, Hannah,
Andrew Dakers Ltd, London, 1940. 
  Hardcover. Ex-Library/No Dust Jacket. First Edition. 600 g; XII, 346 pages, in original blue cloth covered binding.

The author reworks the classic story of Tristan and Isolde, with "no pretensions to historical traditional voracity all too archaeological exactitude, and even if the lance and sword have been used to symbols, more enduring than the rifle and the tank, the heroism of single combat has come to appear less distant, whilst the "fairytale" of Tristan's rudderless gift seems almost to anticipate the fate of airmen of the present-day drifting wounded in their collapsible boats." -- page XII Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall.
