Hand-colored endsheets. B&w diagrams. An uncommon edition of "The Book of the Law" published by the well-known OTO figure Ebony Anpu and his co-publisher Lotte Lieb (Sr Iahan) under the Stellar Visions imprint. The verso of the first title page has a series of quotes from the Grady McMurtry versus the Marcelo Motta court case of 1985, whilst the final leaf has a statement about the O.T.O. on the recto, and a blank verso. The book comprises the printed text of "The Book of the Law" ("Liber CCXX"); the diagram "A few indications for the student of the line to be adopted in his elucidation of Liber AL"; from "The Equinox of the Gods"; the "Tunis Comment"; and a facsimile of the holograph manuscript of "The Book of the Law" (Liber XXXI).

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. Obviously the print-run was small as copies are seldom seen. A little light rubbing to covers, otherwise a tight clean VG+ copy. Scarce. Item #66667
