The Holy Books of Thelema, in Five Volumes as received by 666.

United Kingdom: Hell Fire Club, 2015. First edition thus. Deluxe, limited edition. Hardcover. Octavo. Five volumes in custom clamshell case. The most limited of the three deluxe formats of this set produced by the Hell Fire Club. Each of the five volumes of this edition are bound in full English vellum with gilt numbering to spines, gilt illustration reproducing the design of the front covers of the 1909 edition: ‘THELEMA’ title within Egyptian borders. Text printed in red and black throughout on fine cream paper with French marbled endpapers. The volumes are housed in a full leather-bound and silk-lined clamshell case with gilt "THELEMA" on upper cover and gilt titling to spine. Edition limited to only 11 hand-numbered sets, thus. From the publisher: "These special editions of the Holy Books of Thelema are being issued as a five volume set. The first three volumes are based upon Aleister Crowley's own first edition issued in 1909, the fourth volume contains other Holy Books not issued in the first edition, whilst volume five is a complete text of the Book of the Law suitable for both private and Temple use. Originally the volumes of 'THELEMA' were issued one at a time as the aspirant progressed through the successive grades of the Outer College of the Order, we maintain this tradition today. We have kept much of the presentation and layout of the original 1909 edition of 'THELEMA', adding those further Class A documents (eight additional in our volume 4, plus a ninth additional in our volume 5) in uniform bindings. With volume 5 we see Liber XXXI (The Book of the Law) printed side by side with its own transcription, the line arrangement of the type closely resembles the original manuscript providing the reader with a useful and unique experience at such times as the reading of the verses during the three days of revealing of the Book of the Law." A Fine example of this very limited edition set - this, the most deluxe of the sets issued, apparently sold out before publication. A lovely set! Additional shipping will apply on this set due to size and value. Item #64331
