On the Loose. Planetary Jouneys and Earthly Sketches.

London: The Equinox, [1910]. First Edition thus. Hardcover. Small Octavo. viii + 164 pp [+ 2 pp of adverts], Neat contemporary pebbled black leatherette, with gilt titling, to spine. Raffalovich was one of Crowley's closest friends and disciples until the inevitable falling out. Crowley thought very highly of Raffalovich's literary work, which he praised in his "Confessions" and published in the Equinox series, as well as separately under his Equinox imprint . In 1910 he reprinted this collection of Raffalovich's stories, which had originally been published by Arnold Fairbairns two years earlier. The work was originally bound in printed wrappers, which were quite fragile, which probably explains why this copy was rebound in leatherette at an early date (the wrappers are NOT bound in). Bookplate on front paste-down. Page edges dusty, otherwise a tight, clean, VG + copy. Item #53219
