London: Mandrake Press, ND [ 1990s ]. Reprint. Softcover. Quarto. 32pp. Printed cream wrappers with title etc. and shamrock device printed in black on upper wrapper. Mandrake Press booklets - no. 27 with their adverts inside rear cover. A facsimile reprint of the 1901 First edition. A book of Crowley's early poetry, comprising a Prologue. (The Exile), Carmen Saeculare, In the Hour Before Revolt and an Epilogue (To the American People on the Anniversary of their Independence.) In his 'Confessions' Crowley observed " Carmen Saeculare was actually the result of a more or less prophetic vision. Some of its forecasts have turned out wonderfully well, though the century is yet young; others await fulfilment --- but I do not propose to linger on merely to obtain so morbid a satisfaction!" Light browning to edges and bumps to corners, light rubbing and creasing to covers- still a clean VG copy. Item #60261
