London: First Impressions, 1992. First Edition Thus. Softcover. Small octavo. xii + 112pp. Cream printed wrappers. The First Impressions reprint of this work about which Crowley wrote that the love lyrics in the collection: "treat love not as an object in itself, but on the contrary, as a dragon ready to devour and one less than St. George.' Poems include 'The Whore in Heaven,' 'The Lesbian Hell,' 'The Summit of the Amorous Mountain,' etc. This copy SIGNED by publisher Anthony Naylor on the title page and comes from the collection of Clive Harper with his discreet book-label neatly tipped in at the rear.
