Typescripts: a typescript of an apparently unpublished essay: "Notes on the Sepher Sephirah"

NP, ND (1948). An unbound typescript. Four leaves of 11" x 8.5" quality typing paper secured together with a staple in the upper left margin (text on rectos only). Diagram in blue ink in-text. A study of the penultimate verse of the Qabalistic text "Sepher Sephira" in which Achad compares and discusses the translations of Kalisch, Westcott, and Stenring. Typed date August 31-September 1, 1948, in the colophon. Apparently unpublished. The typescript was presumably prepared either by Jones himself or one of his close followers. Charles Stansfeld Jones (Frater Achad, 1886-1950) was for a number of years Aleister Crowley's chief disciple. For a time Crowley regarded Jones as his "magical son", born of his sex magical workings with Jeanne Foster in 1915, and also identified him as the child prophesied in "The Book of the Law," but questions and mistrust arose, and Jones' association with both Crowley and the O.T.O. became increasingly fraught until he was formally expelled from the Order by Crowley in 1936. The relationship was probably not helped by Jones having joined another esoteric group, the Universal Brotherhood, in the early 1920s. He appears to have become head ("Mahaguru") of that organization in 1928, a position which he apparently held up to his death. The typescript is from the archives of John P. Kowal, Charles Stansfeld Jones' successor as Mahaguru of the Universal Brotherhood, who inherited a vast quantity of Jones' papers. Very good condition. Item #54535
