A typical occult journal of the time: each issue includes essays by various authors on subjects such as Crowley, Dion Fortune, practical magic, kabbalah, neo-pagan witchcraft, current events in the occult movement, etc. as well as illustrations, advertisements, and reviews. The majority of the contributors are anonymous or pseudonymous, but they apparently included some quite well-known individuals. Although not marked as such, from the collection of English bibliophile and Aleister Crowley scholar Nicholas Bishop-Culpeper (and thus each issue almost certainly contains some reference to Aleister Crowley). Cheap fanzine-type production values. Otherwise very light wear and darkening to wrappers. Tight clean VG+ copies of this scarce periodical. Item #62485
