About this Item: Creation Books, London, 2001. Paperback. Condition: New. First Edition. Moonchild is a comprehensive study of Angerís films focusing in particular on the occult, mind-altering, homo-erotic, and pop-culture elements found within such classics as Fireworks, Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome, Scorpio Rising, and Invocation of My Demon Brother. Moonchild also contains numerous opulent film images, quotes from Kenneth Anger, and a complete filmography, making it the definitive study of one of cinemaís most charismatic yet elusive innovators. Kenneth Anger (born Kenneth Wilbur Anglemeyer; February 3, 1927) is an American underground experimental filmmaker, occasional actor and author. Working exclusively in short films, he has produced almost forty works since 1937, nine of which in particular have been grouped together as the "Magick Lantern Cycle," and form the basis of Anger's reputation as one of the most influential independent filmmakers in cinema history. His films variously merge surrealism with homoeroticism and the occult, and have been described as containing "elements of erotica, documentary, psychodrama, and spectacle." Anger himself has been described as "one of America's first openly gay filmmakers, and certainly the first whose work addressed homosexuality in an undisguised, self-implicating manner," and his "role in rendering gay culture visible within American cinema, commercial or otherwise, is impossible to overestimate", with several being released prior to the legalisation of homosexuality in the United States. He has also focused upon occult themes in many of his films, being fascinated by the notorious English occultist Aleister Crowley, and is a follower of Crowley's religion, Thelema. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Seller Inventory # 044651

Aleister Crowley 12 October 1875 ¿ 1 December 1947), born Edward Alexander Crowley, was an English occultist, writer, mountaineer, poet, playwright, yogi, and possible spy.

About this Item: Samuel Weiser Inc., New York, 1970. Hard Back. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. First Weiser Edition. 335 Pages in 23 Chapters. 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". Seller Inventory # 18519

About this Item: The Mandrake Press, London, 1929. Hardcover. 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). Seller Inventory # 006119
