The Book of the Goetia of Solomon the King; Translated into English Tongue by a Dead Hand and Adorned with Divers Other Matters Germane Delightful to the Wise

London: The Equinox Ltd., 1976. Facsimile Edition. Hardcover. Quarto, x + 66 pp. Black cloth with red title, etc. to spine and front board. B&W diagrams, ribbon page markers. The famous grimoire of talismanic magic, the Lemegeton of Solomon. Crowley first published his edition of the book at Boleskine in 1904, in an edition of only 200 copies using translations which had been prepared by S. L. MacGregor Mathers, his former mentor in the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. This edition (a facsimile with minor corrections) was published by "The Equinox (Booksellers and Publishers) Ltd." - the sadly short-lived venture by Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin which briefly brought a frisson of excitement to the gentlefolk of Kensington, London, in the mid-1970s. Light bumps to corners and light bruising to spine ends, partially - and rather messily - erased London bookshop ink stamp on both the front pastedown and rear blank, typed owner's label with books title, aquisition date, etc. on upper corner of front blank. Otherwise a tight, bright and clean VG+ copy in VG+ dust jacket. (Dust jacket is just lightly rubbed at edges with a few tiny chips to extremities. Now covered in protective mylar sleeve.) Large book, additional shipping may apply. Item #64753
