Berkeley, CA: Privately published, 2018. First Edition. Hardcover. Octavo. 252pp. Scarlet cloth with gilt titling to spine. Edition limited to 200 copies signed by Jerry Cornelius. From the publisher: "In this book, J. Edward Cornelius recounts the history of the A.’.A.’. from its inception to the present, but mainly documenting a period when the Order as a whole was under direct threat of extinction from within. It began when a newly formed A.’.A.’. lineage of ex-Marcelo Motta students from the late-1980s under the leadership of a supposed new “World Teacher” came out and declared itself, by extremely odd and convoluted logic, to be the sole heirs to Aleister Crowley’s legacy. It then demanded that all other A.’.A.’. lineages acknowledge their sole authority. And when other lineages quite predictably told it to get bent, it tried to strong-arm its A.’.A.’. rivals into submission by using the worldly might of the Ordo Templi Orientis (OTO) against them."
