The text of this first German language edition is translated from the 1971 revised edition of John Symond's biography of Crowley "The Great Beast." That reissue reflected the changes in society that had taken place since the original publication of the book in 1951 and went into far greater detail about Crowley's use of sex and drugs as well as incorporating additional material that was originally published separately in Symond's "The Magic of Aleister Crowley."
