A new and expanded edition of this detailed (and sometimes controversial and sometimes humorous) study of "The Book of the Law" that was originally published as issue 8 of the Thelemic research journal "Red Flame." From the publishers: "The original manuscript of Liber AL vel Legis is subjected to a minute analysis - every word, punctuation, emendation and 'chance shape of the letters' is examined in detail, resulting in the most accurate transliteration of the holograph possible. The creation of the various typescript versions of Liber AL, known as Liber CCXX, is also thoroughly examined, tracking the numerous changes in each of the published versions." Also included is R. Leo Gillis' contribution to the recent so-called Fill/Kill debate, the essay "Deem not of Change: Fill vs Kill in Liber CCXX." From the collection of Clive Harper with his discreet book-label neatly tipped in at the rear.
