Additional Major Arcana of the Tarot

I have a copy in French of " Les Tresors du Tarot: Acces aux
Mysteres du Cosmos" and "Fragments de Gnose: Bases de
L'Esoterisme" by Nicolas Tereshchenko (Both published by: Guy
Tredaniel, 65 rue Claude-Bernard, 75005 Paris, France) , and I
understand that the complete Tereshchenko work on Tarot is going
to be published in English under the title "The Cosmos Tarot"
(Publisher: Murray Wilson, 1280 M.  Mt.  Hermon Road, Scotts
Valley, CA 95066).

This work deals with the Tarot as a medium of learning and
describes as well as the traditional arcana, 5 additional major
arcana including the 23rd major arcanum, known as "The Drowned
Sleeping Titan." This arcanum was previously unknown except by
the high initiates of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, as
mentioned but not illustrated in the Israel Regardie book ("The
Complete Magical System of the Golden Dawn").  Tereshchenko shows
a picture of this major arcanum as well as those of 4 additional
major arcana and also proposes that the total number of major
arcana should be 38, as is also being gradually found by other

Does anybody know about these additional major arcana and/or have
seen them in their meditations? If so, what can you say about

Would appreciate any information.  Thanks
