About this Item: Shenval Press, London, 1962. Paperback. Condition: Very Good. First Edition. Thomas Edward Neil Driberg, Baron Bradwell (22 May 1905 - 12 August 1976) was a British journalist and politician who was an influential member on the left of the Labour Party from the 1950s to the 1970s. He was revealed as a spy for the Soviet Union by Vasili Mitrokhin. Tom Driberg was born at Crowborough, Sussex, to Amy Mary Bell of Dumfriesshire and John James Street Driberg who worked for the Indian Civil Service as Chief of Police and Inspector of Jails for the Province of Assam. He was educated at Lancing College and joined the Communist Party when he was fifteen. He studied Classics at Christ Church, Oxford (1924-1927) without taking a degree. During the General Strike in 1925 he worked at Communist Party headquarters and began writing for the Sunday Worker, a communist newspaper. From 1928 he worked on the Daily Express and created the William Hickey diary and gossip column. He was also connected to the intelligence services of both the United Kingdom and Soviet Union, as demonstrated in the Mitrokhin archives. He was created a Life peer, as Baron Bradwell, of Bradwell-juxta-Mare in the County of Essex, shortly before his death. His autobiography, Ruling Passions, was published posthumously and disclosed the conflict between the three passions that drove his life: his homosexuality; he pursued casual and risky encounters compulsively, going cottaging and using rent boys, his left-wing political beliefs, and his allegiance to the High Church tendency of the Church of England. Winston Churchill said of him, "Tom Driberg is the sort of person who gives sodomy a bad name." "He is the man who brought pederasty into disrepute.". Driberg's will insisted that at his memorial service, the reader excoriate him for his sins rather than praise him for his virtues. One connection Driberg wished to conceal was his early friendship with Aleister Crowley. After Crowley's death, John Symonds discovered a paper on which Driberg had solemnly pledged himself to the Great Work in the presence of the Beast 666. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall.

About this Item: Rider and Company; London, Gerald Duckworth & Co. Ltd, 1951. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Included. 1st Edition. TWO PRESENTATION COPIES ON THE LIFE OF CROWLEY SYMONDS, John. The Great Beast. The Life of Aleister Crowley [with] Id., The King of the Shadow Realm London, Rider and Company, 1951; London, Gerald Duckworth & Co. Ltd, 1989. £1650 FIRST EDITION. 8vo, pp. 316, ill. AUTHOR’S PRESENTATION COPY inscribed on verso of front flyleaf: “For Michael Hamburger, / the fruit of our many discussions, from / John. Oct 26, ‘51”. Bound in blue cloth, gilt title to spine. Original dust jacket overall in good condition: edges, hinges lightly rubbed and worn, just a few little marginal tears. This is the first of four biographical books by John Symonds (1914-2006) on the notorious English occultist Aleister Crowley: the man who inspired the Beatles, the beat generation and fostered Western magic and Eastern esotericism. It was Symonds who introduced readers to ‘The Great Beast’. The writer met Crowley shortly before he died 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’. The present work has an inscribed dedication to Michael Hamburger OBE (1924-2007), a noted British translator, poet, critic, memoirist and academic of German literature. The two friends visited Crowley when he was at Netherwood in Hastings, as another Symonds inscription testifies to. Our copy of his The King of the Shadow Realm bears the following dedication to Hamburger: “Michael / in memory of our visit to the Beast 666 / John / September 1989”. Inscribed by Author(s).

About this Item: Gerald Duckworth & Co. Ltd, 1989. Soft cover. Condition: Very Good. JOHN SYMONDS’ HOLOGRAPH COPY ON THE LIFE OF CROWLEY SYMONDS, John. The King of the Shadow Realm London, Gerald Duckworth & Co. Ltd, 1989. £13500 8vo, pp. x [ii] 558. Paperback, worn. Copy with author’s revisions of “The King of the Shadow Realm”, to be retitled “The Beast 666” (1996). Symonds’ pen notes, corrections and typed paste-ins found extensively throughout. A magnificent Solander box, sumptuously bound in full red morocco gilt with a stylised portrait of Crowley and his inimitable signature on the front cover. Gilt spine in 5 compartments with raised bands, stamped title and the unicursal hexagram, one of the important symbols in Thelema, probably derived from Blaise Pascal’s Hexagrammum Mystichum. Symonds’ own corrected copy for the fourth edition of his biography of Aleister Crowley, to be entitled “The Beast 666”. The first and second editions (1951 and 1971) had been called “The Great Beast”, while the third (1989) was titled “The King of the Shadow Realm”. The work was described by Colin Wilson as “a kind of appalling classic”, as it illustrated Crowley’s absolute depravity. Inscribed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # ABE-1525189340445
