Appendixes and recommended reading list. Stated first edition. This copy from the library of British artist, writer and musician DAVID TIBET (founder of the music group Current 93) with his OWNERSHIP SIGNATURE opposite the the title page, along with his notation that it had previously come from the library of David Hall The book had thus earlier belonged to his friend, David Hall (1942-2007), author of "Beelzebub and the Beast" and numerous shorter works, and editor and publisher of popular 1970s magazine "Sothis". Loosely inserted are 6 small sheets of Hall's handwritten notes on the book as was his custom. Thus while previously owned and read - it appears unused but for some light foxing to upper edge and a hint of shelf wear. An interesting selection of Crowley texts with Forewords by Genesis P-Orridge and the late Robert Anton Wilson.
