An Original Cast Metal Printing Plate of an Occult Diagram Depicting a Heptagram within a Heptagon, with Astrological Symbols at Each of the Points.

(ND: ca 1944). The plate is in relief and appears to cast from a metal alloy. The metal plate is irregularly shaped, but at its widest is 4 7/8 inches. It is mounted on the original 4 7/8 inch square, 7/8 inch thick, wooden block. The plate/block has "Crowley" written in ink on one side - almost certainly by the manufacturers (printers?) so that they could identify the job with which it was associated. It comes from an old collection, with other Crowley printing plates that date from the early 1940s, but we have been unable to find any publication in which this diagram has been used, so it seems likely that that it was prepared for a publication that Crowley planned, but never executed. Overall VG+ condition, an interesting and intriguing curiosity. Item #67678
