Chicago, IL: Privately Printed / Collegium Spiritum Sanctum, 1925. "Autograph" Edition. Hardcover. Large Octavo. xiv + 106pp + 48pp Appendix (+ ivpp. adverts). Blue cloth with gilt lamen on upper board, "Autograph Edition" stamped in gilt across top of spine, gilt tilting across spine, beveled edges, top edge gilt. Color frontispiece and three color plates with tissue guards. Fold-out diagram at rear. SIGNED by Frater Achad on the dedication page. This "short Cabalistic treatise on the Nature and use of the Tree of Life" by Crowley's one-time 'magickal son,' was the first of Achad's major Kabbalistic works. His controversial reassignment of some of the attributes of the Tree of Life was first revealed in an appendix to this work. Achad first published the work in 1922, and issued this "Autograph Edition" three years later - almost certainly using unsold sheets of the First Edition in a new casing (the year 1922 is retained on the title page, but 1925 is stamped across the foot of the binding). Corners bumped and a little chafed, spine ends lightly bruised, a little light fading to fore-edge of rear board, page edges darkened, pages lightly toned- else a tight, bright and unmarked VG+ copy. (no dust jacket issued). Item #63981
