Aleister Crowley. The Biography: Spiritual Revolutionary, Romantic Explorer, Occult Master - and Spy.

London: Watkins Publishing, 2012. First Paperback edition. Softcover Large octavo. xxii + 474pp. Sixteen page b&w and colour photo insert, endnotes, bibliography and index. The first paperback edition of this biography, this copy INSCRIBED on the title page by Tobias Churton to British artist, writer and musician David Tibet (founder of the music group Current 93) with David Tibet's OWNERSHIP SIGNATURE at the upper edge of the title page. From the publisher: "This biography, written with the cooperation of leading Crowley scholars and including new revelations from Crowley's grandson, displays the full scope of the man's many achievements as poet, explorer, spiritualist, wartime spy, and a thinker as significant as Jung, Freud, or Einstein." Many questioned the need for a new biography of "the Beast" so soon after the release of the widely-admired revised edition of "Perdurabo," but Churton's work has been very well received with most knowledgeable commentators positive about the fresh perspectives that it offers. Light overall shelfwear, otherwise a tight, clean VG+ copy. Item #68345
