United Kingdom: Hell Fire Club, ND ( 2005 ). First Edition Thus. Hardcover. Small folio (11 3/4 x 8 inches), eccentrically paginated, but approx. 94pp. Quarter black goatskin with black buckram boards, printed paper label to upper board. Page edges tinted. This edition limited to 72 numbered copies - each copy with the name and sigil of one of the 72 Goetic demons written/dawn on the limitation page. This copy with those of the 38th Demon, Malphas. The first "Hell Fire Club" production. The actual contents are an almost exact reproduction of the 1993 First Impressions edition, which was a facsimile of the 1904 first edition of Crowley's "Goetia," but reproducing the annotations and drawings preserved in two of Crowley's personal copies. These annotations include 3 pages of notes on the text by Gerald Yorke, two additional footnotes and seven drawing of demons by Crowley, three pages of Enochian calls in the handwriting of Leah Hirsig, etc. etc. The "Goetia" was apparently the first volume "published" under the Hell Fire Club imprint (ca. 2004/2005). This deluxe edition was advertised as limited to 72 copies thus, bound with leather spine and buckram boards, although it seems there were also some copies in wrappers, and a few in full leather. 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. A bright copy in Fine condition, still in the somewhat frayed glassine wrapper. Item #68270
