Secret Agent 666. Aleister Crowley, British Intelligence and the Occult.

Venice, CA: Feral House, 2008. First Edition. Softcover. Large octavo. vi, 289pp, 1 page advert + xvi page b&w photograph insert at center. INSCRIBED by the author opposite the title page "to Martin P. Starr with thanks and best wishes, Richard Spence. June '08". A fascinating, well researched study of Crowley and his connections with British intelligence services in both World Wars. Written largely from previously un-accessed source archives and source materials, the author describes Crowley's connection with events as disparate as the sinking of the Lusitania, the disruption of Indian nationalist plots, and the flight to Britain of Nazi leader Rudolph Hess. From the collection of Martin P. Starr (essayist, author of "The Unknown God", editor of Crowley texts, co-founder of the Teitan Press, etc.) with one of Starr's personalised "post it notes", with his name printed on it, loosely inserted for use as a book mark. Tiny closed tear at upper spine and just a hint of shelf wear - else a tight, clean VG+ copy. Item #68172
