Item Description: Kegan Paul Trench Trübner and Co., London, 1899. First edition. Hardcover, large 8 vo, 224pp. Cream cloth spine with brick-red paper covered boards, paper spine label. The first publication of this selection of Crowley's earliest works. It comprises the verse-play, Jephthah, along with a collection of plays-in-verse and poetry which comprise the "Mysteries, Lyrical and Dramatic." According to Crowley's first bibliographer, L. C. R. Duncombe-Jewell, 1,000 copies were printed thus, on machine-made paper, with an additional 6 printed on India paper, bound in buckram. Oddly, although not one of Crowley's scarcer works, it is a book seldom seen in Very Good condition. A 12 page catalogue from Crowley's "Society for the Propagation of Religious Truth" has been tipped in between the front free endpaper and the half-title page. Copies encountered are routinely extremely shabby, to the extent that one well-known collector has jokingly posited that the number of damaged copies extends beyond simple coincidence, and that someone must have intentionally embarked on a very effective campaign of deliberate vandalism! This is one of the better copies that we have seen. Like most, is a bit shabby, the points are rubbed and the corners rounded, the spine darkened and spine label has been reinforced (reasonably unobtrusively) by covering it with transparent tape. The pages are uniformly browned. The paper of the inside hinges is cracked but the binders tapes are strong, so the boards are still strongly attached with just a hint of looseness to the rear board. and both hinge and preliminaries a bit loose, otherwise the internals are clean and unmarked. Overall near VG. Bookseller Inventory # 33578

Item Description: P. R. Stephensen 41 Museum Street ., London, 1930. First Edition. Softcover. 8vo. 16pp. Original pale blue-grey stapled printed wrappers. In February 1930 Crowley was invited to give a lecture to the Oxford University Poetry Society on the notorious medieval French occultist and mass-murderer Gilles de Rais. However the lecture was cancelled at the last moment after pressure was brought to bear by the University's Catholic Chaplain, Father Ronald Knox. Crowley retaliated by having his friend and publisher P. R. Stephensen quickly print copies of the lecture in booklet form, which were then sold on the streets of Oxford, thereby reaching a far greater audience than his original lecture would ever have attracted. Due to their ephemeral nature, the original booklets are now quite scarce, despite having probably had a relatively large print-run. From the library of English bibliophile and Aleister Crowley scholar Nicholas Bishop-Culpeper, with his book-label on the inside front cover. Wrappers a little darkened and rubbed at edges, paper lightly browned, otherwise an unmarked VG copy. Bookseller Inventory # 39641

Item Description: Society Ordo Templi Orientis, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 1991. First Edition. Softcover. 8vo. xvi + 430pp. Original wrappers, b&w illustrations, index. Two pages of errata, one tipped in at inside front cover and one on page 324. The extremely scarce true first edition of "Thelemic Magick Unexpurgated. Part II," as published in 1991 in this softcover format. It comprises Chapters XIII - XXI, and the VIII extensive Appendices of Crowley's "Magick in Theory and Practice," and an extensive (31 page) index. The book is prefaced by a page on the Parzival XIo O.T.O. Foundation, which sought to continue Motta's legacy after his death, and an unsigned three page editorial, probably written by William Barden. The editorials and typography were done in Australia, the printing and binding in Brazil. Marcello Motta had died in 1987, and this volume did not include his commentaries, which were presumably unavailable to the editors at the time. There exists a hardcover edition, also dated 1991, but it is completely reset, has a new Introduction, and includes Motta's commentaries (although, apparently in keeping with Motta's intentions, it has only 3 of the eight appendices). Despite its date copies did not appear on the market until relatively recently, suggesting that it is actually a more recent Edition, that for whatever reason had its publication back-dated. In any case, this softcover edition is the true First Edition of the Motta publication and is genuinely scarce. This copy well used. Covers rubbed, bumped and a little darkened and discoloured, spine darkened and lightly creased, page edges a little grubby and well thumbed, owner's name on upper margin of title page. Still a solid, unmarked Good + copy. Very scarce. Bookseller Inventory # 47473

Item Description: Left Review, London, 1937. First Edition. Softcover. Large Octavo. 28pp. Yellow stapled wrappers, printed in red. Covers very slightly darkened and a little chafed at edges, staples slightly rusty, a little light scattered foxing, otherwise a tight, clean VG+ copy. The editors, a distinguished body of literary figures including W. H. Auden, Nancy Cunard, Pablo Neruda, Heinrich Mann and Stephen Spender, wrote to 148 British writers asking their opinion on the Spanish Civil War, which then raged. In specific they were asked to respond to the questions: "Are you for, or against, the legal Government and the People of Republican Spain? Are you for, or against, Franco and Fascism?" Those who replied included Alastair [sic] Crowley and also : W. H. Auden, Edmund Blunden, Vera Brittain, Nancy Cunard, Norman Douglas, T.S. Eliot, Havelock Ellis, Aldous Huxley, Cecil Day Lewis, Rose Macaulay, Arthur Machen, Ezra Pound, Vita Sackville-West, George Bernard Shaw, James Stephens, Evelyn Waugh, H.G. Wells, Rebecca West, and many others. With the original publisher's advertising printed wrap around. From the collection of English bibliophile and Aleister Crowley scholar Nicholas Bishop-Culpeper, with his book-label loosely inserted. The spine of the booklet is lightly faded, and there is a little moderate scattered foxing, but it is still a clean VG + copy. The wrap around is folded so as to display the lettering, and is faded at the spine, and with a neat tape repair to verso. Copies with the "wrap-around" intact are extremely scarce.

Item Description: Privately Published ND 1916, Washinton, D. C., 1916. First Edition. Hardcover. 8vo. 500pp. "Author's Edition": limited to 500 copies signed and numbered by the author (that is Henry Clifford Stuart). Navy blue cloth with white lettering. Portrait. A bizarre collection of letters mainly preoccupied with politics and finance - but touching on everything from the duties of the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces to the moral superiority of the Zulu warrior - written by New York businessman Henry Stuart Clifford to a number of luminaries including Lloyd George, President Woodrow Wilson, Sun Yat Sen as well as to various newspapers. Crowley, who spent the years of the First World War in the United States in relative penury, was apparently more than happy to take on the presumably reasonably-paid task of collecting, editing, and arranging the letters, as well as writing a 16 page introduction to them. Indeed he does so with considerable gusto, and it is difficult not to suspect that some of his more sycophantic observations are more than a little tongue-in-cheek. The inside front hinge is cracked but firm (suggestive of a judicious application of binder's glue at some stage). A little wear to the edges of the boards. Overall a VG copy. (no dustwrapper - believe none issued). Bookseller Inventory # 35603

Navy blue cloth with white lettering. Portrait. A bizarre collection of letters mainly preoccupied with politics and finance - but touching on everything from the duties of the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces to the moral superiority of the Zulu warrior - written by New York businessman Henry Stuart Clifford to a number of luminaries including Lloyd George, President Woodrow Wilson, Sun Yat Sen as well as to various newspapers.

Indeed he does so with considerable gusto, and it is difficult not to suspect that some of his more sycophantic observations are more than a little tongue-in-cheek. Their appear to have been two issues of "A Prophet in His Own Country." Both have identical bindings with "Author's Edition" printed at the foot of the spine. One issue has a limitation statement to the effect that the edition was: limited to 500 copies signed and numbered by the author (that is Henry Clifford Stuart), that was printed on the page opposite the title page. In the other issue - presumably a "trade edition" - the page is blank: i.e. it has no limitation statement and is neither signed nor numbered. This is the latter, "Trade" edition. From the library of English bibliophile and Aleister Crowley scholar Nicholas Bishop-Culpeper, with his bookplate on the front pastedown and name pencilled on front free endpaper. Corners and spine ends lightly bruised and chafed, light rubbing to boards and edges, small dark rectangular shadow at mid-spine, a few light marks to rear board, owner's names and a series of penciled numbers on front blank, penciled notes on verso of rear blank, some early pages roughly opened resulting in ragged edges and a few chips, otherwise a tight, unmarked VG+ copy.

Item Description: The OTO, London, 1946. First Edition. Hardcover. Quarto. 128 pp. Original brown cloth with gilt lettering down spine and on upper board, which also has a gilt-stamped device - Crowley's 'Mark of the Beast' sigil. Frontis portrait of Crowley by Augustus John. Dust jacket design includes a portrait of Crowley by Lady Frieda Harris, designer of the Thoth tarot deck. Crowley's own selection of his best poetry, and the last of his books to be published in his own lifetime. Famously a binders error saw the 'Mark of the Beast' sigil on the front board stamped upside down. Due to war-time economy standards, paper rationing etc., the book did did not have the production values or durability of some of Crowley's earlier works, with cheap, rough cloth used, etc. This copy is better than many seen: there are a few darkish lines in the cloth on the front board (these are possibly color flaws that were there from new). Corners and spine ends lightly frayed, and a few light bumps to the edges of the boards. Pages uniformly browned, otherwise a clean, fresh, tight, VG or better copy with the front panel (only) of the dust jacket, now protected behind an acetate sleeve (the front panel is worn, rubbed and heavily chipped, but preserves the Frieda Harris design and titling, the only actual printed area on the otherwise white dust jacket).

Item Description: Kegan Paul Trench Trubner & Co Ltd., London, 1899. First Edition. Hardcover. 8vo. xxii + 224pp. Original brick-red paper-covered boards, with quarter linen spine and paper title label. Crowley's verse-play, Jephthah, along with the collection of plays-in-verse and poetry which comprise the 'Mysteries, Lyrical and Dramatic.' According to Crowley's first bibliographer, L. C. R. Duncombe-Jewell, 1,000 copies were printed thus, on machine-made paper, with an additional 6 printed on India paper, bound in buckram. Oddly, although not one of Crowley's scarcer works, it is a book seldom seen in Very Good condition. Copies encountered are routinely extremely shabby, to the extent that some have jokingly posited that this could not be the consequence of simple coincidence, and that someone must have intentionally embarked on a very effective campaign to locate and vandalise all that could be found! Most copies seen include 8pp of advertisements bound in at the rear. This copy is bound without the advertisements - perhaps indicative of it being an early issue. The cloth of the spine is a little concave, and the title label, though 90% complete, is rubbed and creased. Inside front hinge cracked but holding firm, end-papers and preliminaries a little browned, corners of boards chafed, rounded, and lightly faded. Boards a bit chafed in spots with a few light marks. Faint rectangle across the top board, perhaps where a label of some sort has been removed, with a cigarette-end sized hole and some waviness to the paper covering the board (for some reason this is far more pronounced in the photograph than when viewing the book with the eye.) Endpapers unevenly browned. Overall somewhat grubby (as common), but still a solid, Good copy. Bookseller Inventory # 31474
