The Law is for All. An Extended Commentary on The Book of the Law.

Las Vegas NV: Falcon Press, 1983. Second Edition. Softcover. Octavo. [ xvi ], 368pp. Glossy printed wrappers. This copy INSCRIBED and SIGNED on the front blank by the editor, and Crowley's former secretary, Israel Regardie (1907-1985). This inscription reads: "For Delrose / with my love / Francis " ("Francis" being Regardie's original first name, and the name by which close friends knew him.) The uncommon second edition of this landmark work in the dissemination of Thelemic thought. It includes both Crowley's "old" and "new" comments, and a facsimile of the manuscript ("Liber XXXI") of "The Book of the Law," as well Regardie's Introduction which was omitted from some later editions. "The Law if for All" was arguably the first book to present Crowley's thoughts on "The Book of the Law," to a broad modern audience, being more widely available than the "Magical and Philosophical Commentaries on the Book of the Law" which was published in 1974 or Motta's "The Commentaries of AL" which was published in 1975. From the collection of Clive Harper with his discrete 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 bit rubbed overall (as common with this edition) with edges lightly rubbed and a few light creases. Page edges darkened otherwise a tight & unmarked VG+ copy. An uncommon edition of an important work that is seldom seen inscribed. Item #67750
