St. Paul, MN: Llewellyn Publications, 1968. First Edition - First Printing. Hardcover. Small quarto. 242pp. Black cloth with gilt title, etc. to spine. Includes a lengthy (63 page) introductory essay by Israel Regardie, and the texts of Crowley's "The Psychology of Hashish" and his translation of Baudelaire's prose-poem "The Poem of Hashish," as well as works by others. This copy from the collection of Clive Harper with his discreet 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. Spine ends and corners very lightly bruised, light bump to lower edge of upper board. Otherwise a tight, bright and unmarked VG+ copy in VG dust jacket (Dust jacket is a bit darkened at edges, lightly chafed and creased and with a few short closed tears, price - clipped, Now protected in removable mylar cover.) Still an uncommonly nice copy. Item #66589
