The Stone of Cybele; a "Golden Twigs" story by Aleister Crowley.

Syracuse NY: Luminist Publications, 2004. First Edition Thus. Softcover. Octavo. ii, 20pp. Stapled colour illustrated wrappers with publisher's clear mylar protective cover, b&w baphomet illustration. "The Stone of Cybele" was one of Aleister Crowley's "Golden Twigs" series, a collection of stories based on Frazer's "Golden Bough", many of which were first published in "The International" magazine. "The Stone of Cybele" did not make it into that journal, however, and first appeared in "The Equinox," Vol. III No.10 (1986). This Luminist Publications edition is thought to be its first separate printing. 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. A tight, clean near Fine copy. Item #67115
