THE GRAIL LEGEND., Jung, Emma & Von Franz, Marie-Louise.  Translator: Andrea Dykes.
3 Jung, Emma & Von Franz, Marie-Louise. Translator: Andrea Dykes. THE GRAIL LEGEND.
Boston Sigo Press 1986 093843408X / 9780938434085 Second Edition Soft Cover Very Good 
452 pp, 9" H. B&w illustrations. "The Holy Grail and its quest is a legend which has had a powerful impact on our civilization and culture. The Grail itself is an ancient Celtic symbol of plenty as well as a Christian symbol of redemption and eternal life, the chalice which caught the blood of the crucified Christ. The story of the Grail sheds profound light on man's search for the supreme value of life, for that which makes life most meaningful. Writing in a clear and readable style, two leading women of the Jungian school of psychology present this legend as a living myth that is meaningful to modern life. We encounter such universal figures as the Fool (the naive young Perceval), the Wise Old Man (the Hermit Gornemanz), the Virgin Maiden (Blancheflor), the Loathly Damsel, and such important themes as the Waste Land, the Trinity, and the vessel of the Grail. Weaving together narrative and interpretation, the authors show us how the legend reflects not only fundamental human problems but also the dramatic psychic events which form the background of our Christian culture." Interior - one tiny corner crease, otherwise clean and tight with no other ownership marks. Exterior - minor soiling on bottom of text block, tiny dent at top of spine, very faint creases on spine, one tiny corner crease.

Spells don't seem as potent, and there's been a general decline in quality of wizards practicing the craft. But when the Wizards' Guild votes to open its meetings to alchemists - as far as Kedrigern is concerned, that's the last straw. Leaving the Guild meeting in a snit, Kedrigern - master magician and purveyor of counterspells - bids adieu to his conjuring comrades to pursue a life of quiet contemplation and study. However, he soon finds just how lonely such a life can be - even with a helpful house-troll named Spot for company. What's a 160-year-old bachelor to do? The social scene on Silent Thunder Mountain is the pits. And Kedrigern is decidedly too young to even contemplate marriage - by wizardly standards, of course. It's not until after much though that our humble hero resolves himself to marriage...and so begins his quest for a bride. But will Kedrigern rush into wedlock with the first enchanted princess who speaks up?" Interiors - pages browning lightly, otherwise clean and tight with no previous ownership marks, Exteriors - light edge wear, a few very small corner creases, tiny area of dis-coloration on top of textblock of book 3, spines flat with faint creases on books 4 & 5.
