Astrology Your Place in the Sun. Evangeline ADAMS, Aleister CROWLEY.

Astrology Your Place in the Sun.

New York, NY: Dodd, Mead, & Company, ND. Reprint [ Twenty-sixth printing ]. Hardcover. Octavo. xxiv + 344pp. Original light grey cloth with blue titling to spine. B/w illustrations. In 1915 - 1916, whilst in America, Aleister Crowley wrote a work called 'The General Principles of Astrology Liber DXXXVI', apparently at the behest of the enormously popular 'society' astrologer Evangeline Adams. Adams heavily edited the work and published it under her own name in two separate volumes, this book being the first volume. It proved enormously popular and almost certainly outsold any book published under Crowley's own name during his lifetime. Extremities a little chafed, spine ends and corners bruised, bookplate on pastedown, page edges darkened, paper a little toned, unmarked. Overall a tight, clean VG+ copy in Good dust jacket (Dust jacket a bit darkened, all edges and extremities a bit chafed, come minor chipping tearing and tape repair, not clipped). Item #58404
