Little Essays Toward Truth.

NP [ USA ]: Privately Printed. 1987. First Edition Thus. Limp covers. Quarto. iv + 44 pages. Black strip binding with dark black plastic covers. Glossary. A duplicated (xeroxed?) typescript made from the text of Crowley's book "Little Essays Toward Truth." It apparently exactly reproduces the text of the original 1938 edition, and appears to have been typeset using a wordprocessor. A typed label on the coloured blank at the front explains that it was "especially prepared as a gift for .... (Frater Fiedelgis) ... in 1986 e.v. by G. M. Kelly .... editor of the Newaeon Newletter." There is also a neat, hand-written, signed, presentation inscription from Kelly on the next leaf. G. M. Kelly - (b. 1951) - AKA Frater Keallach 93/676 - is a Pittsburgh based Thelemic firebrand and scholar who began writing and publishing "The Newaeon Newsletter" in 1977 and whose "Sword of Horus" essays have ruffled many feathers over the years. The volume is an interesting reminder of the efforts that Thelemites had to go through - not that long ago - to access and share out-of-print or difficult-to-find Crowley material in those pre-internet days. Privately produced by Kelly, as noted, and if not unique we can be sure that no more than a handful of copies of the text were prepared in this form. Most recently 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. Some offsetting from the presentation label, otherwise VG+. Page edges a bit darkened, else a tight, clean near Fine copy. Item #67173
