Moonchild. Aleister CROWLEY, Kenneth Grant, Dennis Wheatley.


London: Sphere Books, 1979. Reprint. Softcover. Pocket sized paperback. 302pp. + iipp adverts. Illustrated covers. A seventies pulp paperback edition of Crowley's well known novel. It includes two Introductions, one by Kenneth Grant and the other by Dennis Wheatley. Great period cover art. The book is 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. Edges lightly chafed, a few vertical creases down spine, page edges and outer margins lightly browned. Overall VG copy of this somewhat scarce printing. Item #65020
