Chicago, IL: Privately Printed / Collegium Spiritum Sanctum, 1922. First Edition. Hardcover. Large Octavo, xiv + 106pp + 48pp Appendix at rear. Quarter white cloth with green papered boards, gilt lamen imprinted on upper board, top edge gilt, printed paper title label on spine, color frontis and plates with tissue guards, fold-out. Edition limited to 250 copies numbered copies signed by the Frater Achad on the limitation page. This copy signed, and numbered 5. A "short Cabalistic treatise on the Nature and use of the Tree of Life" by Crowley's one-time 'magickal son,' was the first of Achad's major Kabbalistic works. His controversial reassignment of some of the attributes of the Tree of Life was first revealed in an appendix to this work. Cloth spine slightly darkened (as usual), paper spine label darkened and chipped around the edges- but (unusually) 95% intact. Extremes of points rounded, soft paper covering of boards rubbed through at corners, slight darkening of tissue guards. A couple of scrapes (printing flaw?) affecting a few letters in the caption of the frontispiece. Still a clean VG+ copy of this First Edition. (Issued without dustjacket). Item #53187
