Thame, England: Mandrake Press, Ltd., 1991. Limited - First Edition thus. Hardcover. Octavo. 48pp. White cloth with gilt device on upper board. Frontis. Edition Limited to 350 numbered copies. This copy signed by Keith Richmond on the title page. There is some uncertainty as to whether the original 1909 Edition of this book was ever actually issued - if so then all copies of it must (as one story goes) have been amongst a shipment of Crowley books that were destroyed by British Customs ('Alexandra' apparently, on account of disrepectful references to the British Royal Family). Only two proof copies are known to have survived, and the text of one of these - that held in the Yorke collection - provided the basis for this edition. Foil anti-theft device on rear pastedown - otherwise a lovely clean near Fine copy in lightly rubbed VG+ dust jacket. Item #60287
