Aleister Crowley's Secret Temple: The Seven Palaces & the Work of the Chariot.

San Bernardino CA: The Author, 2014. Updated Edition. Softcover. Small quarto (10' x 7"). 92pp, b&w and colour illustrations, endnotes. Standard POD production values. As far as we can determine this is the (unstated) revised edition of this work which "includes the keys to the newly deciphered Liber Tzaddi vel Hamus Hermeticus and .. features new full colour esoteric illustrations." The author suggested that the book offered a solution to "the riddle" of "The Book of the Law" and offered a key to understanding a variety of important A.'. A.'. texts by drawing on the teaching of Merkabah mystics. The work was apparently only available for some eight months - during which time it attracted some interest and controversy - before it was withdrawn by the author, apparently as she reconsidered certain of the ideas presented. Contents include: Foreword by Steven Ashe; Preface; The Seven Palaces and the Key to Liber AL.; Merkabah, Ritual and Magick; The Mysteries of Liber Al vel Legis; Anagrams and other puzzles; Liber Ararita and the paths of the Seven Palaces; Liber Ararita rearranged; The Merkabah Keys to Liber Arcanorvm; The Merkabah keys to Liber B vel Magi; The Merkabah keys to Liber Tau; Liber Tzaddi vel Hamus Hermeticus; Merkabah – the mystery of the Chariot Wheel; Aleister Crowley and the Merkabah; Notes; The Seven Palaces in the Ancient Near East & the Indus Valley; Standard Gematria and Secret Gematria. etc. There is, loosely inserted, a page which is apparently a print-out from a facebook posting by the author in which she discusses the book and her decision to withdraw it from sale. 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. A tight, bright near Fine copy. Scarce. Item #66630
