New York: Pearson's Magazine, 1917. First Edition. Softcover. Quarto. Eccentrically paginated (145-192pp). Original wrappers. A journal edited by Frank Harris, long-time associate and friend of Aleister Crowley. This issue includes a full-page essay by Crowley entitled: "Near Poetry, Mr. George Santayana" in which he discusses the poetry of George Santayana. The "In The Limelight" column by Frank Harris also includes a three paragraph piece on Crowley, announcing his editorship of "The International" as well as reproducing a rather muddy "Psycho chrom" portrait of Crowley by Leon Engers Kennedy. Also various other articles and editorial comments by Harris and pieces by other authors.
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. Covers a little rubbed and darkened, light vertical crease, chafed at edges, lightly chipped at spine, pages browned, some with some creasing to edges, otherwise unmarked. Still, about a VG copy of this scarce periodical. Item #67159
