Magick Without Tears. Aleister CROWLEY, Israel Regardie.

Magick Without Tears.

St. Paul, MN: Llewellyn Publications, 1973. First Edition Thus. Hardcover. Large Octavo. xxxvi+ 522 pp. Original blue cloth with gilt title, etc. to spine, 4 full-page illustrations. Crowley had originally intended to entitle this book 'Aleister Explains Everything' - it is in essence his personal commentary on his own magical work and training - in the form of 80 letters addressed to students. It is without doubt one of his most straightforward, and lucid expositions of Magick. It was first published by Crowley's follower, Karl Germer, in an edition that almost certainly did not exceed 100 copies. This edition includes Germer's original foreword, and a new Introduction by Israel Regardie, who also edited the text, removing some material he felt to be redundant. Book slightly canted, hint of bruising to points, page edges darkened and dusty with some foxing as always. Tape offset to front and rear endpaper (the volume evidently had a home-made dust jacket protector at some stage). A tight, unmarked near VG+ copy in VG dust jacket (Dust jacket rubbed, a little chafed and with a few small chips and tears at folds, edges and points, not clipped). Item #56095
