Book Description n.p., New York, 1918. Wraps. Book Condition: Very good. First separate edition. 8vo. 121,(1),3pp. Printed wraps. A fine copy. Originally published over seven issues of the Alienist and Neurologist between 1915 and 1917, Shroeder pulls together the writings of Ida C., the earthly wife of an angel (in her own words), who died 22 years previous to this publication. Considered an obscene sex manual by local authorities; Craddock was jailed on morality charges several times. But Aleister Crowley says no Magick library is complete without this title. A very good copy with only a race of wear to the spine. Housed in a custom leather-backed clamshell case. Rare. Bookseller Inventory # 17793
