Description

In The Richest Vein, published in 1949, Charles le Gai Eaton was the first to give a clear account in English of the 'traditionalist' school of writers, specifically in the setting of his chapter on two of its major representatives, René Guénon and Ananda K. Coomaraswamy. It was T. S. Eliot who commissioned him to do this. Traditionalism has since been championed by others, pre-eminent among them Frithjof Schuon, and the past decade has also seen the completion of the monumental 23-volume Collected Works of René Guénon, an achievement that could only have been dreamt of at the time the present book was written. But precious little has been published about these authors; and this is perhaps not so surprising, for their writings tend to repel minds over-saturated with the psychism of the modern age. But those who treasure traditionalist works inevitably seek to furnish their libraries with any title that bears upon them. This demand, alongside the inherent and lasting interest of Mr. Eaton's writing, is sufficient reason to republish this work, and we hope it may reach many new readers and stimulate them to look further into the writers he so engagingly characterizes here.
