Item Description: Printed for the Author, Chicago, 1922. 1st Edition. First edition of Achad's most important book. Ex-Libris Aleister Crowley. Extraordinary Presentation Copy Inscribed By Frater Achad: "To my Beloved Father / 666 / in the hope that this, my / first book, may meet with / his approval / 777". 8vo., 106 pp + 43pp. + 4 colour plates (including frontispiece) + 1 folded black & white diagram. Limited Edition: #2 of 250 signed copies. THE MOST IMPORTANT POSSIBLE ASSOCIATION COPY. Black paper-covered boards, linen spine, paper title label, top edge gilt. Label slightly chipped, some wear to corners and edges of boards. Light damping along top margin of first few leaves and a couple of inconsequential nicks. Interesting bookplate of Phyllis Duveen. A very good & important copy. Aleister Crowley ("666") considered himself to be the "Spiritual Father" to Frater Achad (Charles Stansfeld Jones, "777"), as he relates on page 801 of the CONFESSIONS: "What I had really done . was to beget a Magical Son. So, precisely nine months afterwards . Frater O.I.V., entirely without my k now ledge, became a Babe of the Abyss. . The Book of the Law speaks of this 'Child' as 'One,' as if with absolute vagueness. But the motto which Frater O.I.V. had taken on becoming a neophyte was 'Achad,' which is the Hebrew word for 'One.' It is further predicted that this 'Child' shall discover the Key of the interpretation of the Book itself, and this I had been unable to do." In this light, Achad refers to Aleister Crowley as his "Beloved Father" in the INSCRIBED DEDICATION. This is copy # 2 of 250; we presume that copy #1 was retained by the Author. The bookplate of Phyllis Duveen, the wife of Denis I. Duveen, a noted collector of Alchemical books & Esoterica] was possibly executed by AUBREY BEARDSLEY (although unsigned). The Duveen Collection is noted for its depth and balance. The catalogue of Duveen's library "Bibliotheca Alchemica et Chemica: An Annotated Catalogue of Printed Books on Alchemy, Chemistry, and Cognate Subjects in the Library of Denis I. Duveen," printed in London, 1949 remains a touchstone for scholars and collectors of European Chemistry before 1900. There are some penciled annotations in the margins of the text. These include the following: Page 2 has the phrase "get Essay Berashith" (to be found in the Collected Works of Aleister Crowley). Page 49 has the word "Tau" noted across from a discussion of THE UNIVERSE. Page 64 has the phrase "Book 777" across from a section on THE TREE OF LIFE. Page 97 has the phrase "Liber Legis" in the margin where the author refers to THE INITIATION OF 1917. BY THE MASTERS OF WISDOM FROM OTHER PLANES OF BEING. We cannot confirm that this penciling is in the hand of Crowley, nor of the previous owner Duveen but all things are possible. Signed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # 21175

Item Description: Walter Scott Publishing Co., London, 1907. 1st Edition. Presentation Copy inscribed to his great friend, Edward Thornton. One of 500 signed copies, additionally inscribed in blue/black fountain pen on the ffe: "Dear Thornton, / Here's luck! How is it / I never hear from you? / Aleister Crowley / [22 Chancery Lane WC]" Small 4to. The first issue bound in black buckram with white lettering [light out of darkness]. A very good copy with some minor shelf wear & surface rubs; the white silk screened titles still quite sharp - a bit of light foxing to the fly leafs [Signed by Aleister Crowley beneath his frontis portrait]. The book contains four essays primarily & was one of Crowley's own favourite works. He wrote glowingly of it in his 'Confessions', in particular describing the final essay 'The Stone of the Philosophers' as being " really beyond praise". "I now began to see that this was schoolboyish bashfulness, and to feel my responsibility as an exponent of the hidden knowledge, to treat my prose as reverently as my verse, and (consequently) to produce masterpieces of learning and wit. The "Dedication and Counter-Dedication" of Konx Om Pax is wholly admirable and it rises to a delightful satirical climax of four stanzas on the "empty-headed Athenians". "The Wake World" is a sublime description of the Path of the Wise, rendered picturesque by the use of the symbols of the Taro, and charming by its personification of the soul as a maiden. "My name is Lola, because I am the Key of Delights, and the other children in my dream call me Lola Daydream." "Ali Sloper; or the Forty Liars" shows traces of my old vulgarity. The dramatis personae contain a lot of bad puns and personal gibes, but the dialogue shows decided improvement; and the "Essay on Truth" is bo th acute and witty, with few blemishes. "Thien Tao" gives my solution of the main ethical and philosophical problems of humanity with a description of the general method of emancipating oneself from the obsession of one's own ideas, while there are passages of remarkable eloquence. The last essay in Konx Om Pax, "The Stone of the Philosophers which is hidden in Abiegnus, the Rosicrucian Mountain of Initiation", is really beyond praise. Its genesis is interesting. I had written at odd times, but mostly during my travels with the Earl of Tankerville, a number of odd lyrics. The idea came to me that I might enhance their value by setting them in prose. I therefore wrote a symposium of a poet, a traveller, a philosophical globetrotter, an a dept, a classical scholar and a doctor. They are made to converse about the chronic calamity of society, and the poems (ostensibly written by one or other of the men) carry on the thought. The result is, in reality, a new form of art; and I certainly assisted the lyrics by giving them appropriate springboards". - A.C. Signed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # 21177

Item Description: Foyers, The Society for the Propagation of Religious Truth, 1905–7, 1905. 3 volumes in 1, octavo. Original limp white buckram, titles to upper board gilt, top edge gilt others uncut. Some spotting to endleaves, cloth rather grubby. Very good. Printed on India paper. First Edition, Sole Printing. With the ownership inscription of one Raymond Radclyffe on the front free endpaper, underneath which is Crowley's later signed presentation inscription, "I am sad, for he [Radclyffe] was one of the very best that ever lived; a City Editor straight as Euclid before Einstein attacked him, and one of the best literary critics and friends in the world. But now I am glad, for Collin Brooks to whom I give this copy (which is not mine to give) has restored me to that 'too much love of living' which I thought I had packed. Aleister Crowley 26-5-42 EV". A spectacular piece of early Crowley egomania. Radclyffe was a journalist and editor of whom Crowley wrote, "Raymond Radclyffe, who, though utterly indifferent to Magick, was passionately fond of poetry and thought mine first-class, and unrivaled in my generation"!.

Item Description: A rare and interesting four-page autograph letter signed by Aleister Crowley ("666") to his disciple Frieda Harris, April 11th (no year, but 1941). Written from "Barton Brow, Barton Cross" [Torquay] besides which Crowley has written "crucified Sir Percy" - a whimsical reference to Frieda Harris’ husband Sir Percy Alfred Harris, the letter begins with the Thelemic greeting, "Do what thou wilst shall be the whole of the law." He then goes on with six detailed numbered points, the first of which is devoted to an angry denouncement of solicitors (?) Hooper & Walker, who apparently were acting on behalf of his previous landlady and demanding damages for "dilapidations" and loss to the furnished rooms that he had rented. Despite his anger, Crowley manages to weave in a joke about Duchess of Windsor: "I must admit to being much intrigued by the ‘hard-worked Duchess’! ‘Ruined’, too! (can they refer to the late Mrs. Simpson?)" The second section concerns a note to be forwarded to a Miss Bach, apparently about reclaiming some property of his that is in her possession. In the third section he bemoans the tardiness of a typist, Mrs. Upton, in preparing a typescript of Liber LXV. He asks rhetorically if a "prod in the panties" might do some good, and adds that "if she has finished the typing, I could add in the Hebrew myself." In the fourth section he refers to several of his publications, in particular discussing his Songs for Italy, in the process lamenting that "I do have lapses into human frailty. I am ashamed all right; but I can’t help feeling that I could be so much more useful to manikind if I were gently levered into my proper place as a poet. And prophet. Also, it is surely abstract justice that those who was in 1923 what England painfully sees now should have a little credit and consideration. It is shaking hands with thieves and treacherous murdereers that leads to trouble. (Yes, I do hate the political game!) Besides the vision and forethought which I had in ’23 might still be useful to the world in this catastrophe". In the fifth section he discusses "a sad appeal" that he had received, and goes on to say that the answer is "all in [his play] Sir Palamedes the Saracen," and his Hymn to Astarte, continuing that "It is the attainment of the 8 = 3 that supplies the only permanent cure." In the final section Crowley reveals that he is still planning on founding another Abbey, and discusses the O.T.O. principles around which it would be organised, gently chiding Harris that these were explained "in your O.T.O. papers, which you lost!" He closes the letter with "Love is the law, love under will," and signs off "F .’. ly [fraternaly] 666." In very fine condition. Bookseller Inventory # 000288

Item Description: 1972-1977, 1972. The archive comprises 6 Autograph letters signed, from Peter C. Scott MacFarlane to John Symonds; 16 Typed letters, signed, from Peter C. Scott MacFarlane to John Symonds; 2 autograph letters signed from Rupert Gleadlow to John Symonds; 1 Typed letter, signed, from Kenneth Grant to Geoffrey Smith; 12 Typed letters, signed, from Kenneth Grant to John Symonds; as well as a small number of related photocopies, carbon copies, and envelopes in which the letters from MacFarlane were posted. An interesting and important archive. Although one of the Grant letters is as recent as 1990, and the Gleadlow letters are from 1955 & 1962 respectively, the vast majority of the correspondence dates from the 1970s, the period which witnessed a major revival in Crowleyan publishing in the UK and the birth of 93 Publishing in the U.S. The letters are mainly to do with this: discussing various publishing projects, some of which came to fruition: including works such as "The Magical Record of Aleister Crowley," "The Complete Astrological Writings," the reissue of "The Confessions", 93 Publishing's "Leah Sublime" and "Magical and Philosophical Commentaries on the Book of the Law" etc, and others which did not (a number of different abortive volumes are also mentioned). In addition to much discussion of what should be published by whom and when, royalties, etc. etc. some of the letters contain other significant content. One, three paged typed letter from Grant to Symonds, is a highly insightful critique of Symond's "The King of the Shadow Realm" which aside from offering many factual corrections, includes comments such as "I think that your disbelief in magic(k) so saturates your book that A.C. is stripped effectually of any serious Goal. This preempts any of his methods for achieving it, so, of course, one is free to attribute any other motives for his actions; and this liberty you have taken." In an interesting aside Grant also notes "As you know, Aiwaz, Ab-u;-diz, Amalantrah, and Their ilk, interest me far more than do the interests through whom he gained contact with them." In a 1983 letter to Geoffrey Smith, Grant observes: "You say that you walk the Right Hand Path and I the Left. Actually, I no longer walk any path, since paths lead somewhere and there is no where I particularly wish to go, or can go for that matter, so I have decided to stay where I am - which is all anyone can do, if one thinks about the matter." The seventies was of course also the period in which Grant's own writing really took off, with the publication of the first Typhonian trilogy, and there are also references to these books, his "Images and Oracles of Austin Osman Spare" etc. etc. The letters are printed on a variety of different types of stationary, from plain typing paper, to aerogrammes, to the rather luxurious letterhead of Peter MacFarlane's different enterprises. They range from short notes, to serious multi-page communications. All the letters etc. are in VG or better condition - a few show some creasing, but none have any noteworthy damage.

Item Description: Llewellyn Publications, Saint Paul, Minnesota:, 1970. 1st Edition. Presentation Copy. 8vo., A near fine copy in the publisher's black cloth, gilt - in a lightly used dustwrapper. Regardie has warmly inscribed this book to Ursula Greville: "For Ursula / who did some editing on this magnum opus / Love, Francis." {Regardie dedicated AHA! to Ursula Greville a 'loving, generous, devoted friend of many years who, like Aleister Crowley changed the entire course of my life.'} This is a stated First Edition / First Printing. There is some light wear to the board's extremities & to the crown and foot of the book's spine. There are three small page notations on the final free endpaper. The dustwrapper is not price clipped; with the original publisher's price of $10.00 still intact on the front flap. There is a 1" x 2" chip missing from the top right corner of the front panel and a 2" closed tear in the same area. There are several small chips missing from the crown of the DJ's spine. "Aleister Crowley has for years been reviled by the public media as 'The Most Evil Man in the World.' And he has for years been hailed by a small handful of scholars as the greatest of modern mystics, the 'Prophet of a New Aeon.' Now, The Eye in the Triangle appears to clear up some aspects of the dual mystery. In this book Israel Regardie examines the life and work of Aleister Crowley from a sympathetically objective point of view. Many of Crowley's loveliest and holiest works are quoted from sources long out of print. The Eye in the Triangle is essential to an understanding not only of Crowley but of all modern magic and occultism." -- from the book's dustwrapper. Signed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # 26938

Item Description: Rider & Co., London, 1932. 1st Edition. Presentation Copy To Hereward Carrington. First edition. large 8vo, 286 pp, A very good copy [some shelf wear & wear at the head & heel of the spine in publisher's black cloth, gilt title to spine, illustrated, 3 beautiful multicolor plates, 6 other illustrations. Presentation Copy - Hereward Carrington (1880-1958) was one of the great psychic & magic researchers of the 20th Century. He was friends with Houdini, Crowley, & other greats in the magic & occult realm. He wrote several books, including "Houdini and Conan Doyle", along with Bernard Ernst. He was President & founder of the American Psychical Institute, had his own radio show in the 1930s/40s. His books are still in publication today. (Francis) Israel Regardie (1907-1985) was an occultist, author and one time secretary to the legendary Aleister Crowley. As an adept of the now defunct secret order known as the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, he became infamous among the occultists of his day for breaking his oath of secrecy and publishing the order's complete rituals in his book "The Golden Dawn". Regardie continued with his occult studies and already established as a co-author, published the first of his own books A Garden of Pomegranates and The Tree of Life in 1932. The first contai ned his Qabalistic studies and was based on research and knowledge gleaned from various sources. The Tree of Life however was based on the teachings of the Golden Dawn, which had ceased to exist in 1903. When published it caused a lot of excitement among the occult elite and was considered one of the most complete and understandable texts on practical magic ever written. Through out his career, Regardie's own achievements were often overshadowed by his association with Aleister Crowley, which often frustrated him, but his charitable nature and his ability to be forgiving toward his old friend was evident when he authored perhaps the most definitive biography on Crowley called The Eye in the Triangle. Regardie retired from his practice in 1981 and moved to Sedona, Arizona where he continued to write. His later books included Ceremonial Magic, The Lazy Man's Guide to Relaxation, and The Complete Golden Dawn System of Magic. While retired he continued to give advice on health and magical matters until the end of his life. Signed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # 21180

Small 8vo. vi + 104pp. Original printed jap vellum turned-in wrappers, over plain paper boards. Title page in red and black. One of an issue of 50 copies on handmade paper. It was intended that these would be numbered and signed, and although this copy has been numbered, it has not been signed. (There was also an issue of 2 copies on roman vellum, and 300 copies on machine made-paper ). A collection of verse by Crowley, dedicated to a romantic interest named Lola who he met just as he was about to break up with his wife Rose: "At Coulsdon, at the very moment when my conjugal cloudburst was impending, I had met one of the most exquisitely beautiful young girls, by English standards, that ever breathed and blushed. She did not appeal to me only as a man; she was the very incarnation of my dreams as a poet. Her name was Vera; but she called herself "Lola". To her I dedicated Gargoyles with a little prose poem, and the quatrain (in the spirit of Catullus) 'Kneel down, dear maiden o'mine.' It was after her that my wife called the new baby!" Wrappers grubby and internally (and very neatly) reinforced at spine. All else sound and bright. Overall a VG+ copy. Bookseller Inventory # 33979

Published under the Adams's name, the book was likely written by Aleister Crowley who co-wrote & ghost wrote several titles with Adams over a number of years until they has a falling out. This title was her [their] most ambitious; a primer to the planets' influence in the various signs & contributed much to her success as the most famous astrologer of her day, responsible for broadening the appeal of astrology in America. "Adams came from the same illustrious family as two American presidents, John Adams & John Quincy Adams; however, she dismayed her conservative New England relations by, 'dabbling in heathenism'. Her clients ranged from the poor and unknown to the powerful and famous. She taught astrology to financier John Pierpont Morgan, who once stated, 'Millionaires don't use astrology, billionaires do."

Item Description: Carfax, London, 1963. First edition. Hardcover. Octavo. 32pp. Black cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Black dust jacket starkly lettered in white. The first hundred copies of this edition were supposed to have been numbered and signed on the limitation page, but it seems unlikely that this was done as we have never seen a copy marked thus. While this copy is neither numbered or signed on the limitation page, it is inscribed in Grant's handwriting: "Kenneth / to / Kenneth / Spring 1963" (an obvious play on the book's title "Black to Black") on the half title page. As this was presumably the time of publication, it is tempting to speculate that this may once have been Grant's own copy, although the possibility remains that he inscribed it for a namesake although it is then hard to explain why he didn't sign and number it. "Black to Black" contains fifteen poems and is the first volume of poetry to be published by Kenneth Grant. From Grant's preface: "Prose is a record of experience, whereas all real poetry is experience itself, both for the poet and his reader. Where prose achieves this quality it is no longer prose, but poetry, regardless of its form or structure. Poetry is therefore a means of knowing Reality - it is direct experience - and this Reality does not consist in what is experienced but in the act of experiencing itself. Similarly, it matters little of what we are conscious; the object of consciousness has value only insofar as it proves the presence of consciousness. Likewise, poetry has an arbitrary content, being an experience of Reality on levels which transcend the contingent, such as the actual content of the poem, its structure, and accidental accessories conditioned by time and place. Poetry is the means of experience as well as being the experience itself, in the same sense that the Prajna and the Upaya are identical." The faintest of bruising to spine ends, paper lightly browned, otherwise a lovely near Fine copy and very scarce, especially with a contemporary inscription. Bookseller Inventory # 47979

Item Description: NP, NP, 1942. A single sheet of 9 x 7 inch paper with typed message and the letterhead address of solicitor Isidore Kerman, to which is pinned a piece of 4.5 x 8 inch notepaper on which is typed a receipt for thirty pounds, loaned to Crowley by Kerman. The receipt is (unusually) signed by Crowley with his legal name: "Edw[ar]d Alex[ander] Crowley." Isidore Kerman was for a long time Crowley's solicitor. The letter, which is dated December 16th 1942 and addressed to Crowley at 140, Piccadilly, London W.1., advises him that he is returning the attached I.O.U. following Crowley's repayment of a thirty pound loan. Interestingly Kerman's secretary also mentions that he has written to the Chiswick Press - Crowley's preferred printers - advising them that the debt has been repaid, the implication being that they were offering some sort of surety on Crowley's behalf; possibly agreeing not to release stocks of his books until notified that Kerman had been repaid (such an arrangement is confirmed by Crowley's diary entry for the day of the loan, "Kerman . insists on a letter from Chiswick Press - blast him!"). Crowley was not exactly well-known for the repayment of debts, but evidently was clever enough to heed the old adage that only a fool would cheat his own accountant or solicitor. Both the letter and the note are in VG + condition. Bookseller Inventory # 51349

Item Description: NP., [London]. Written on both sides of a single sheet of 5" x 8 1/4" notepaper, with Harris' "Dove in a Pyramid" design printed in blue at the top of the page. Beside this Harris has written "Castle Hotel / Brecon / S. Wales, Jan 30th 1947." The letter begins and ends with the Thelemic greetings and is signed simply "Frieda Harris." Approx. 200 words. A concerned letter - Crowley had obviously written to Harris and mentioned that he was ill with Phlebitis. Harris asks about his health and laments that there is no 'phone in the neighbourhood but indicates that if she doesn't hear from him soon she'll go out of her way to try to get through. Interestingly the letter indicates that they are working - or intending to work on - another project: "Can you think & do you like to because if you can would you like to begin working out those pictures with details - the Hexagrams I mean - I am awfully stuck here & feel what with this terrible cold & the deep snow as if I were in prison." She goes on further about her concerns: "I am so anxious where you are ill, you the one person I am intimate with in the world. With great love . yours anxiously ." An unusual touching letter, that demonstrates the strength of her feelings for the Beast, despite their often tempestuous friendship. VG+ condition. Bookseller Inventory # 50599

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
