Catalogue 199a consists of works relating to Aleister Crowley and his circle. It is a very eclectic catalogue with items ranging from cheap booklets and reprints to genuine rarities.
In addition to adding fresh stock to our online inventory weekly, we produce regular catalogues in our areas of specialty. Special catalogue subjects include Alchemy and Hermetica, Aleister Crowley, Magick and Grimoires, Spiritualism, and Witchcraft. We also issue our regular "Miscellany" catalogues which cover many fields of interest. If you would like to be notified when we release a new catalogue please sign up to our mailing list (on the left).

The one hundred and ninety-eighth of our internet cataloguesis another of our "Miscellany" lists comprising a varied selection of books and ephemera on different subjects. Most of the items listed are relatively recent second-hand publications but with a few rarities scattered throughout.
The catalogue mostly comprises modern editions of classical works on alchemy and hermetica, including a dozen volumes of the modestly priced AMORC "Alchemical Manuscript Series." As always, there are, however, a few unusual works scattered throughout.
The catalogue consists of works relating to Aleister Crowley and his circle. As usual it is quite a broad selection, including a number of unusual modern printings, some of which are limited editions and signed copies. There are also a number of unusual earlier items. Amongst the latter are the first US edition of Crowley’s The Diary of a Drug Fiend (Dutton, 1923), first editions of Book 4, Parts I & II (2 Volumes: 1912 & 1913), The Tale of Archais (1898), and Carmen Saeculare (1901). Rare ephemeral items include an envelope fragment with Crowley’s name and address in his own handwriting and a large blob of red wax impressed with his eye of Horus seal (much rare than his later Ankh-af-na-khonsu seal); and an amusing and revealing holograph list of errands which Crowley prepared for his disciple J. G. Bayley to undertake on his behalf (December 1943).
The catalogue comprises the usual mix of books, journals and pamphlets, on Spiritualism, Psychical Research, and related aspects of occultism.
This catalogue comprises a very varied selection of books on Magick and the kindred occult arts. In addition to some unusual older publications there are a number of signed copies, limited and deluxe editions, and quite scarce modern printings.
The catalogue comprises a wide variety of books on myths, legends, and the study thereof, from stories of Atlantis through Celtic legends and Icelandic sagas to the less-mainstream aspects of Zoology (cryptozoology).
The catalogue is noteworthy on account of the good selection of books published by Adam McLean under his Magnum Opus Hermetic Sourceworks imprint that it contains. For the rest it has an eclectic mix of scholarly and "practical" books on alchemy and kindred hermetic arts, mostly modern and in lovely condition, as well as a few scarce out-of-print titles.
