New York: 93 Publishing, 1991. First Edition Thus. Hardcover. Large octavo, xxxii + 220pp. Beige cloth w/ red embossed Equinox device to cover author title and publisher details to spine, b&w illustrations, color frontis, maroon endpapers. This copy inscribed by Hymenaeus Beta on the front blank: "For Fra.'. [magical name of the recipient] with love, in the Bonds of the Order. 93 93/93, Hymenaeus Beta [in Greek beside and eleven-fold cross]". The best edition of this quirky magical / philosophical masterpiece by Crowley. With a Prolegomenon by Hymenaeus Beta. 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. Appears "as new", thus a tight & bright, near Fine copy, in original transparent heavy mylar wrapper which is often not present. Item #65415
