¶ Fantasy novel by this noted occultist, "a revision and combination of PRINCE STARBEAM and THE GOLDEN STAIRS, but whereas they are typical Victorian literary fairy-tales, THE QUEST... is a monstrous hybrid combining their worst features with a pale mysticism buried deep beneath a dense mass of verbiage." - R.A. Gilbert. See Gilbert's bibilography of A.E. Waite, item A40.
