The Chalice of Ecstasy. Being a Magical and Qabalistic Intrepretation of the Drama of Parzival by a Companion of the Holy Grail.

Chicago, IL: Yogi Publication Society, 1923. First Edition. Hardcover. Octavo. xii + 82 pp. Maroon cloth with gilt titling to spine and upper board. A "magical and qabalistic interpretation" of Wagner's Parzival, and the myths upon which it is based, by Frater Achad (Charles Stansfeld Jones, 1886-1950), one time student of Aleister Crowley. In it Achad makes comparisons with "Liber AL vel Legis" and is known to be one of the only works by Achad of which Crowley gave unreserved approval, probably not least because it draws largely upon his own works and thought. A touch of rubbing to the extremities, gilt on spine dulled as always. A few minor pencil annotations (easily erased). Still as close to a Fine copy as one is ever likely to see, and scarce thus.
