Did Ted had any studies and examples on the application of triads, particularly diminished and augmented triads on improvisation?

Ted used every chord imaginable. His single line books cover dim and aug scales, however his material is blended with additional tones, rarely does he use straight dim or aug. He talks a little about polytonality in chord chem, but does not touch upon it in the single line books, I believe, from memory. However, his lines are so colourful, that they employ these things deeply buried within, intriniscaly, not necessarily as a device that can be directly identified. His ideas always seem to allow the music to be expresssed, thus he he touches upon whatever is required to make the line beautiful, within the context of the scale studies, whether by chord or by line. So it's worth while opening a book up to any page because it's will likely cover a plethora of sounds! I have worked through 4 of his books cover to cover, and it's quite daunting the compass of sounds he covers, and the depth of style and variation that he employs in every page. Hardly a note superfluous!
