Modesto, CA; Arcane Wisdom (an imprint of Bloodletting Press); 2010. 1st LIMITED edition thus. Moonchild is a novel written by the British occultist Aleister Crowley in 1917. Its plot involves a magical war between a group of white magicians, led by the protagonist Simon Iff, and a group of black magicians over an unborn child. It was first published by Mandrake Press in 1929. Moonchild is a novel held in high regard for its magical and occult significance and also for its complex and well written prose. Aleister Crowley 12 October 1875 ¿ 1 December 1947), born Edward Alexander Crowley, was an English occultist, writer, mountaineer, poet, playwright, yogi, and possible spy. He was an influential member of occult organizations, including the Golden Dawn, the A?A?, and Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.) and is known today for his magical writings, especially The Book of the Law, the central sacred text of Thelema. He gained notoriety during his lifetime, and was denounced in the popular press of the day as "The wickedest man in the world." Crowley was also a chess player in his youth, a painter, astrologer, hedonist, bisexual, recreational drug experimenter, and social critic. This edition includes a long introduction by Don Webb, a noted horror writer and author of Aleister Crowely: The Fire and The Force provides a long introduction to the work with some wit and perhaps some wisdom.

Black boards with gold lettering on spine. Four blue inked-lines of Christmas 1975 gift inscription. No other defects noted to this otherwise As New book with flawless interior text pages. Dust jacket has a 3/8 inch closed tear on the front has two one-inch tears on the back cover. Dust jacket flap is price-clipped. Moonchild is a novel written by the British occultist Aleister Crowley in 1917. Its plot involves a magical war between a group of white magicians, led by Simon Iff, and a group of black magicians over an unborn child. It was first published by Mandrake Press in 1929 and its recent edition is published by Weiser. In this work, numerous acquaintances of Crowley appear as thinly disguised fictional characters. Crowley portrays MacGregor Mathers as the primary villain, including him as a character named SRMD, using the abbreviation of Mathers' magical name. Arthur Edward Waite appears as a villain named Arthwaite, and the unseen head of the Inner Circle of which SRMD was a member, A.B. is theosophist Annie Besant. Among Crowley's friends and allies Allen Bennett appears as Mahatera Phang, the dancer Isadora Duncan appears as Lavinia King, and her companion Mary D'Este, who helped Crowley write his magnum opus Magick: Book 4under her magical name Soror Virakam, appears as Lisa la Giuffria. Cyril Grey is Crowley himself, while Simon Iff is either an idealized version of an older and wiser Crowley or his friend Allen Bennett. Authors note dated London 1929 says This book was written in 1917, during such leisure as my efforts to bring America in the War on our side allowed me. Hence my illusions on the subject and the sad showing of Simon Iff at the end. Need I add that, as the book itself demonstrated beyond all doubt, all persons and incidents are purely the figment of a disordered imagination. Size: 5 3/4" x 8 1/2". Bookseller Inventory # 18519

Item Description: The Mandrake Press, London, 1929. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. Crowley's sought-after novel, freestanding despite the "Prologue" subtitle. Two board corners peeking through the cloth, and some fraying of the blue cloth to top of spine; call this firmly bound 1929 printing "good plus." Signed "Aleister Crowley" to the blank FFE, which (like the RFE) is moderately browned. Then, UNDER his name, the author has inscribed "To Bro Benn" (though the surname trails off, could conceivably be "Bennis" or "Benson," please see scans), "Trusting he will find in these pages the truths he so richly deserves / A" (inscription ends.) The letters "leis" of the author's first name are considerably darker than the rest of his name, and the ink there has bled slightly -- presumably that part of the page was slightly damp when signed. Small, symmetrical nitrate tape marks form a rectangle around this inscription -- possibly a card or piece of paper was once taped there to protect the inscription. Additionally, another previous owner has blindstamped her seal to bottom corner of this page, reading "MDS / Library of Diane Strom." There is a film and television actress of that name, born 1933, but we have no idea if it's the same Ms. Strom. Occult fiction; two magicians battle for the body of a young woman, whom one hopes will bear an ethereal being -- the Moonchild. 335 pp., "Printed and Made in Great Britain by the Crypt House Press, Limited / Gloucester and London.". Inscribed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # 006119
