Item #68300 The O.T.O. Collection from The Blue Equinox. Aleister and CROWLEY, others.

The O.T.O. Collection from The Blue Equinox.

San Francisco, CA: Stellar Visions, 1986. First Edition thus (?). Softcover. Octavo. Not paginated. [Approx. 76pp]. Stapled white wrappers lettered and bordered in b&w. B&W illustrations. Hand-colored endsheets - this copy unusually has two hand colored endsheets at both the front and the back. As the title suggests, this work contains facsimiles of a number of O.T.O. related texts that were originally collected in Crowley's "Blue Equinox" (1919), comprising "Liber LII," "Liber CI," "Liber CLXI," "Liber CXCIV," and "Liber XV." The book was obviously officially sanctioned by the O.T.O. under Grady McMurtry: on the verso of the title page it prints a number of short excerpts from the July 1985 California ruling against Motta and the S.O.T.O., and the adjacent page has the addresses of Agape Grand Lodge (New York) and Thelema Lodge (California).
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. Covers lightly shelf worn and a bit darkened at spine, else a tight, unmarked VG+ copy. Item #68300
