White Stains.

London: Gerald Duckworth & Co. Ltd., 1986. Reprint. Hardcover. Octavo. xvi + 118 pp. Black boards with white titling to spine and design to upper board. The 1986 reprint of the 1973 Duckworth Edition, with an Introduction by Crowley's first major biographer, John Symonds. The original 1898 edition was limited to 100 copies, and it is commonly believed that most of those were seized and destroyed by British Customs on account of the book's allusions to bestiality, necrophilia, paedophilia and sodomy, and kindred subjects, although no-one has been able to pinpoint exactly when this destruction took place. A tight, unmarked VG+ copy in very lightly rubbed VG+ dust jacket. Item #42963
