Item #65130 The Secrets of Aleister Crowley. Amado CROWLEY, Aleister Crowley: related works, Andrew Standish.

The Secrets of Aleister Crowley.

Leatherhead, England: Diamond Books, 1991. First edition. Softcover. Octavo. 182pp. Glossy wrappers. The first edition of the first "conventionally-published" (as opposed to privately printed and distributed) book about 'The Beast' by Amado Crowley [ Andrew Standish, 1930-2010 ?], who claimed to have been the illegitimate son of Aleister, and to have received occult training from the Beast, although these claims are universally dismissed by Crowley scholars. 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. Bump to lower corner, causing a light crease/ripple across the bottom corner of the text block, price sticker to rear cover - else looks unused - thus a tight, bright VG+ copy. Item #65130
