XXXI Hymns to the Star Goddess Who is Not.

Montreal, Canada: 93 Publishing, ND (circa 1973). First Edition Thus. Hardcover. Small Octavo. 44 pp. Red cloth, illustrated boards, white title etc to cover and spine, text printed in blue, frontis. Effectively a facsimile of the very scarce First Edition which was designed by the renowned book craftsman, Will Ransom, and printed in an edition of only 220 copies in 1923. Frater Achad - Charles Stansfeld Jones (1886-1950) was for a number of years Crowley's chief disciple. Crowley came to the conclusion that Jones was his "magical son", born of his sex magical workings with Jeanne Foster in 1915, and later recognised him as the child prophesied in The Book of the Law, who would unlock "mysteries that no Beast shall divine.""Thirty One Hymns to the Star Goddess" is a series of hymns or poetic devotions, directed towards the Egyptian Goddess Nuit, who figures largely in "The Book of the Law." Indeed the quotations attributed to the Star-Goddess in this volume are taken from that Book. This edition published by the highly-regarded 93 Publishing in 1973. A few light bruises and rubs to boards, a couple of tea (?) drops to top edge, just affecting the extreme edge of the upper margin, otherwise a tight clean VG + copy. Item #53366
