Item Description: P. R. Stephensen 41 Museum Street ., London, 1930. First Edition. Softcover. Octavo. 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. Wrappers a little darkened and rubbed at edges, paper lightly browned, otherwise an unmarked VG + copy. Bookseller Inventory # 51308

Some discoloration to the wrappers and creasing to the spine, detachable entry form detached but present, wrappers still firmly attached, internals clean. Bookseller Inventory # 31919

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

Previous owners gift inscription on back paste down. 12 mo. 44pp Crowley wrote the bulk of The Heart of the Master in 1924, although the book was not published until 1938 when it appeared in a very small edition. In his introduction to this edition Kenneth Grant refers to this "small and cryptic volume" as containing "the One True Occult Tradition" and says that it "declares openly the Magical formulae of the New Aeon." Grant explains Crowley's choice of pseudonym by telling that Crowley was "inspired by the spirit of Khaled Khan while on the 'Holy Hill' of Sidi Bou Said, Tunisia, the present site of ancient Carthage. Khan was a great warrior who delivered the Arabs from the stranglehold of Christianity at the battle of Damascus. Both the Khan and Crowley were therefore avatars of the anti-Christian Current represented in the Apocalypse as the Beast 666." Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 17858

Item Description: Kegan Paul Trench Trubner & Co., London, 1901. First edition. Hardcover. 8vo. x + 130pp. Original brick-red boards, with linen spine and white paper spine-label. First Edition limited to 500 copies thus: on machine-made paper (there were also 6 copies on India paper). A collection of poetry in four "chapters." This was one of the few books of Crowley's verse to attract critical acclaim: by his own account no less a luminary that G. K. Chesterton had "written a long congratulatory criticism" of it. This copy was formerly in a circulating library, and has it's blind stamps to a number of pages, remains of bookplate and slips on front and rear pastedowns, and discolored patches on the boards where labels were probably removed. One inch strip missing from the cloth at the top of the spine, most of paper spine-label lacking, corners and edges bumped and rubbed. Internal hinges cracked but holding, pages browning and starting to become brittle. The last dozen or so leaves detached. Complete, but a rather sad, Good only copy. As is.

Item Description: The Equinox, London, 1909. First Edition. Hardcover, 8vo. viii + 296 pp + (ii pp of adverts). Green cloth, gilt title, etc. to spine and front boards. Edition limited to 1000 numbered copies. Raffalovich was one of Crowley's closest friends and disciples until the inevitable falling out. Crowley thought highly of Raffalovich's literary work, which he praised in his "Confessions" and published regularly in "The Equinox" series, as well as separately under his Equinox imprint. "The History of a Soul" appears to be an autobiographical novel, and the printed dedication by Raffalovich: "To my Master, I inscribe this, the record of the early life of a future Magus ." is obviously to Crowley. The work appeared in at least three different issues: first, as this, under the Equinox imprint in 1909, but obviously many copies remained unsold, with the sheets being taken over Francis Griffiths in 1913, who first sold copies with their imprint label affixed to the title page, and then reissued the book with a different binding and mew preliminaries. This first issue includes 2 pages of advertisements for the first numbers of Crowley's "Equinox" series at the rear. Previous owner's name on front free endpaper, endpapers unevenly browned, pages generally lightly tanned. A little modest wear to the cloth, but still a solid, VG or better copy (no dustjacket - none issued). Bookseller Inventory # 38969

Item Description: Society Ordo Templi Orientis, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 1991. First Edition. Softcover. Octavo. 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 # 53595
