The Star in the West. A Critical Essay upon the Works of Aleister Crowley. Capt. J. F. C. FULLER, Aleister CROWLEY.

The Star in the West. A Critical Essay upon the Works of Aleister Crowley.

Kessinger, 1969. Reprint. Hardcover. Quarto. iv+ 328pp + original publisher's adverts. Printed papered boards. A cheaply produced enlarged-size facsimile reprint of the 1907 Walter Scott edition. Fuller, who went on to become one of Crowley's leading disciples, originally wrote this as an entry in a competition Crowley held for the best essay on his own literary work. Fuller's essay won (it is rumoured to have been the only entry) and - surely somewhat surprisingly - he was duly paid the hundred pound prize that Crowley had offered. With Crowley's assistance Fuller rewrote the essay, and Crowley published it in 1907. This is a cheaply-produced facsimile. Page edges a little darkened, otherwise VG+ condition. Oversized - may require additional shipping. Item #63578
