Gems From The Equinox.
St. Paul, MN: Llewellyn Publications, 1974. First edition, Inscribed and signed. Hardcover. Thick octavo. 1134pp. Red faux leather with silver embossed cover and spine. Illustrations, b&w illustrations. The first edition of Regardie's selection of Crowley's most important writings - "all the magical writings" - from the monumental "Equinox series." This copy INSCRIBED and SIGNED by Regardie on the front free end paper "26 Feb 75, Another masterpiece for Sensei San, Warmly, Francis" ("Francis" being Regardie's original first name, and the name by which friends knew him.) This copy most recently 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. Edges of text block a little dusty and discolored, corners lightly bumped and rubbed, a little general shelf-wear. Still a tight and clean VG+ copy. No dust jacket issued. Item #69751
