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: Privately Published [1898], NP, 1898. First Edition. Hardcover. Small quarto. (iv) + 132pp. Original black cloth with title in white across upper board, with white design - a somewhat elongated symbol of Venus - on the spine. The edition had a stated limitation of 100 numbered copies, although copies seen are very rarely numbered. This copy - as usual - is un-numbered. The book itself is one of the most notorious in Crowley's canon, and arguably his most famous work of erotic verse. It was brought into print by Leonard Smithers, publisher of Aubrey Beardsley and Oscar Wilde, and also of Crowley's first book, "Aceldama." In addition to his more open publishing pursuits Smithers was well known as a surreptitious publisher of erotica, and he was thus a logical choice for Crowley to use for "White Stains," given its references to bestiality, necrophilia, sodomy and a wide variety of other sexual practices and perversions. Smithers' precautions appear to have been warranted: although he had the book typeset in Holland and copies were clandestinely delivered to Britain, it is commonly believed that most of the printing was later destroyed after being seized by British Customs, although so far no-one has pinpointed exactly when the destruction took place. An important ASSOCIATION COPY formerly the property of Cecil Frederick Russell (1897-1987). Crowley met Russell in the US in 1918, and initiated him into the third degree of the OTO and accepted him as a Probationer in the A.'. A.'. with the motto Genesthai (a form of the Greek verb meaning "I am born.") Two years later Russell followed Crowley to the newly-founded Abbey of Thelema at Cefalu to take up the practical study of magic, which he was not particularly enthused to discover included participation in various sex-magick rituals with Crowley and other of the Abbey residents (none of whom Russell found to be physically alluring - least of all Crowley). In July 1921, after a spat with Crowley, Russell famously withdrew himself to a hut on the cliff above the Abbey, determined not to come down until he had successfully obtained "the Knowledge and Conversation of his Holy Guardian Angel." The relationship between the two never fully recovered and Russell left the Abbey some months later and later and went on to found various magical groups of his own, notably the Choronzon Club and the G .'. B .'. G .'. ("Gnostic Body of God" - but often cited as "Great Brotherhood of God"). Russell wrote numerous cryptic short works on magick, as well as a very obscure autobiography, "Znus is Zness." He was an avid bibliophile and another of his works, "Provenance" has the distinction of quite possibly being the only twentieth century book exclusively on book-collecting to be written by a practising occultist. It comprises detailed listings of the books in Russell's collection, including three works of "rare curiosa" by Aleister Crowley, the first of which is this very copy of "White Stains." Included with the book is a signed letter from the well-known British book-seller who dispersed the highpoints of Russell's library, affirming that this copy is indeed from Russell's collection. The cloth of the volume is a little discolored and lightly rubbed, a little more so at the points. A small amount of brown paper from the homemade dust jacket has adhered to the top edge of the front board - visible in the photograph (this could probably be removed, but we have not tried). There is a bruise to the mid-spine region and two small bumps on the top and bottom edges, respectively, of the back board. The internal front hinge is starting to crack at the top, but is still very strong. There is a litte very pale foxing to the endpapers, and the pre-title page is somewhat toned. Very light damp mark to the extreme upper corner of pp. 6-7 & 8-9, otherwise it is clean, largely unopened VG + example of a rare and interesting work. The book was issued without dust jacket, but this copy comes with a somewhat chipped plain brown-paper jacket which Russell fabricated fo. Bookseller Inventory # 55655

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: NP [1944], 1944. The letter is written on both sides of a sheet of 7" x 5 1/4" note paper, the recto of which is headed with Crowley's 'Mark of the Beast' sigil printed in red. It is entirely handwritten, and is headed "Bell Inn, Ashton Clinton, Bucks." It is signed on the reverse "Aleister Crowley" in a large, bold hand, using his "phallic A" signature. A short letter of about 80 words that begins and ends with the Thelemic greetings. In it Crowley refers to a horoscope that he had apparently sent to - or planned to send to - Sadler. "It is a pure guess, but the Ascendant is quite certain, and all I know of her makes this figure sound." The accompanying envelope is addressed to Sadler in Crowley's hand, and is postmarked June 22, 1944. The reverse of the envelope has been elaborately sealed by Crowley, with the the cartouche of Ankh-f-n-khonsu from his seal ring heavily impressed into a blob of sealing-wax, about an inch in diameter. Unusually the wax is a salmon color - a hue not normally favoured by Crowley. Sadler has used the back of the letter to draft his response, in pencil, to Crowley. The recipient, W. Dawson Sadler was a conventional Freemason, with esoteric leanings, with whom Crowley was in regular contact from 1944 though 1946. Although not certain, it seems likely that Crowley initiated him into the O.T.O. Both letter and envelope are in Very Good condition, the letter has just the usual creases from having been folded to fit into the envelope and the top edge of the envelope is jagged from having been split open. Both are a trifle darkened. Bookseller Inventory # 34543

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

Item Description: Dodd Mead & Company, New York, 1930. 1st Edition. First Edition. A near fine, fresh copy in a very good original dustwrapper showing light use with a 1" chip on the back panel. Inscribed by Adams on the front free endpaper: "Subscribed to Mr. George H. Gregory / with best of wishes of / Evangeline Adams / May 1930". large 8vo. xiv + 528 pp. original bright blue cloth with gilt title to spine & front cover, Illustrated in B&W, with charts. 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." A rare presentation copy. Signed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # 27519

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: Hell Fire Club ND ( 2004 ), United Kingdom, 2004. First Edition Thus. Hardcover. Small folio, eccentrically paginated, but approx. 94pp. Quarter black goatskin with black buckram boards, printed paper label to upper board. Marbled endpapers, coloured page edges. This edition limited to 72 numbered copies - this copy not numbered, but in its place the publisher has pasted a hand-drawn goetic talisman, on vellum, on either side of which he has written a quote in Latin. Underneath the talisman he has neatly inscribed "for / the Instruction / of Friars [Illegible] / of the Order." The Order was presumably the "Order of the Friars of St. Francis of Wycombe," the full name of the original Hell Fire Club, whose nomenclature the publisher had adopted. The text of the "Hell Fire Club" edition was a direct copy of that of the 1993 First Impressions edition, which was a facsimile of the 1904 first edition of Crowley's "Goetia," but reproducing the annotations and drawings preserved in two of Crowley's personal copies. The "Goetia" was apparently the first volume "published" under the Hell Fire Club imprint (ca. 2004/2005). This deluxe edition was advertised as limited to 72 copies thus, bound with leather spine and buckram boards, although it seems there were also some copies in wrappers, and a few in full leather. Loosely inserted original rather simply-produced publisher's prospectus (appears to be photocopied from a computer printed typescript). Also an autograph letter, signed, from the publisher, presenting the copy (and another book) to a friend. Later from the library of English bibliophile and Aleister Crowley scholar Nicholas Bishop-Culpeper. A bright copy in Fine condition, still in the somewhat frayed glassine wrapper.

Item Description: Thelema Publications / O.T.O., Kings Beach, CA, 1976. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Octavo. Approx. 100pp. Natural raw silk covered boards, with blind-stamped vertical suede-leather title label on upper board. Patterned endpapers, hand made paper, original mylar protective cover has title imprinted in gilt down spine. This is a copy of the specially bound edition deluxe of this printing, which was limited to 100 copies. These usually had a handwritten limitation statement and number, signed by Helen Parsons Smith, but in this case the copy escaped without them - to be clear, it does not have the limitation statement, number or signature. There was also a regular edition in a different binding. Typescripts of Crowley's version of this Chinese classic circulated amongst his students, but the work remained unpublished until 1976. Then, Helen Parsons Smith (1910 - 2003), ex-wife of Jack Parsons and W. T. Smith, and long time member of Agape Lodge of the OTO, produced this edition under her Thelema publications imprint (Stephen Skinner's Askin Publishers in England produced a separate edition almost simultaneously). Errata slip loosely inserted. Cloth lightly flecked and a little darkened, Page edges very slightly darkened, merest hint of pale foxing to the first few leaves. Otherwise a tight, clean, near-Fine copy in the original transparent mylar "dust jacket" with gilt titling down spine. Bookseller Inventory # 53215

Item Description: The Walter Scott Publishing Co, London, 1907. First Trade Edition. Hardcover. Octavo. (x) + 328pp. (+ 4 page publisher's catalogue of 'Mr. Crowley's Books.' bound in at rear.) Original red buckram, elaborate seal and title on top board, and title, occult symbols etc. on spine heavily stamped in white. Frontispiece with original printed tissue guard, title page printed in red and black. Portrait. The first 'trade edition,' (there was also a limited edition of 100 copies, signed by both Fuller and Crowley). Although not carrying a stated limitation, the first trade edition of Fuller's work must have been severely limited in quantity, as it is no less common that the signed edition of 100 copies. Fuller, who went on to become one of Crowley's leading disciples, originally wrote this essay as an entry in a competition Crowley held for the best essay on his own literary work. Fuller's essay won (it is rumoured to have been the only entry) and rather surprisingly he even received the hundred pound prize that Crowley had offered. Together Crowley and Fuller rewrote the essay, and Crowley published it. As often the color has gone from the lettering on the spine but that on the front board is still clear and sharp. Corners bumped, and a tiny tear in the cloth on the front edge, moderate foxing to the preliminaries, still a, clean, tight, about Very Good copy. Bookseller Inventory # 24941

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
