The Poem of Hashish. Aleister CROWLEY, translates: Charles Baudelaire.

The Poem of Hashish.

Syracuse NY: Luminist Publications, May 2005. First Edition Thus. Softcover booklet. Octavo. 44pp. + iipp advert. Stapled colour illustrated wrappers. A reprint of Crowley's translation from the French of Charles Baudelaire's musings on Hashish. The piece was first published in "The Equinox, Volume I, number 3", March 1910. From the collection of Clive Harper with his discrete book-label neatly tipped in at the rear. Harper is well-known as the bibliographer of Austin Osman Spare, for updating the Aleister Crowley bibliography in the 2011 Teitan Press collection of Gerald Yorke's writings, and as someone who has lent his expertise to numerous other publications. The label can easily be removed without affecting the page, although it would be a shame not to preserve this record of the book's provenance. A tight, clean Fine copy in publisher's plastic cover.
