Bibliography, tables. The hardcover edition, limited to 111 copies, each numbered and SIGNED by the author on a loosely inserted postcard. Richard Cole's highly controversial critique of Aleister Crowley and examination of the origin story of "The Book of the Law." The book generated considerable debate, and while many have questioned Cole's conclusions, he does identifiy some genuinely significant anomalies in the well-known accounts of the reception of "The Book of the Law" and discovery of the "Stele of Revealing," as well as exploring some of the more unsavoury aspects of Crowley's personality. A book that anyone with a serious interest in Crowley and Thelema will probably want to read. An unused copy, still sealed in publisher's plastic cover. All editions of this work were out of print nearly immediately after publication. Scarce. Item #67095
