Book Description Rider & Company, London, 1951. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Poor. 1st Edition. First Edition, first printing. 8vo. 316pp. Blue cloth lettered in very slightly defective in gold at spine. With a portrait frontispiece, thirty-two photographs and three illustrations in the text. Cloth lightly rubbed at head and base of spine and a trace of very light spotting to top- and fore edge. Some uneven light browning to the endpapers. A nice bright copy of a scarce book, housed in remnants of the uncommon pictorial dust wrapper, retaining the greater portion of the front and spine panels and both flaps, but with the rear panel almost entirely absent. Former owner name neatly inked to front endpaper. Possibly spurious author's compliments card laid-in. The first of Symonds four biographical books on Crowley. (Symonds met Crowley a year before his death in 1947 and was named his literary executor. He was fascinated yet quite critical of his subject, leading Crowley's personal secretary Israel Regardie to label him "that most hostile biographer"). Bookseller Inventory # ARC90559
