ND [1942?]. A handwritten note on both sides of a single sheet of 8 x 4.75 inch buff notepaper. Although the addressee is not named, it was almost certainly Frieda Harris. Crowley basically outlines his thoughts on trying to pitch their forthcoming work on the tarot to R. H. Naylor, a popular astrologer for the Sunday Express, who Crowley evidently believed could be their road to riches. On the reverse Crowley has written - or really painted - in inch high letters "NO PROOFS" and in half-inch letters "NO LETTER" The note is simply signed '666.' Formerly the property of former Crowley associate, Edward Noel Fitzgerald, (1908-1958), Frater Agape, a IX degree member of the O.T.O. who was also a friend of Lady Harris, who gave him much of her Crowley correspondence. More recently from the collection of British artist, writer and musician David Tibet (founder of the music group Current 93). As with all documents a letter of authenticity will be issued. Professionally framed and mounted: white mounting board border, gilt 10 x 7 inch frame, glazed on both sides so that when taken off the wall the full text on the other side of the document is seen. Document a little discolored and creased, particularly at the edges, and with the usual fold across the center from having be placed in an envelope, frame in Fine condition. Item #55529
