Little Essays Toward Truth.

San Francisco: O.T.O / Stellar Visions, 1981. Reprint. Softcover. Octavo. viii + 84pp + iv. Red stapled wrappers printed and illustated in black, b&w illustrations. One of a number of early variants of the Stellar Visions edition of this collection of essays, Kabbalistic, Magical and Philosophical written by Crowley at his mature best. The Stellar Visions booklets were were published in the 1980s as part of the massive effort by Ebony Anpu and friends to make as many important - and often difficult-to-find Crowley texts available again. This edition includes a short introductory on the O.T.O. "To all it may concern" as a postscript. 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.
Oddly the title-page and O.T.O. "introductory" are at the rear of the booklet, rather than the front, and the Kabbalistic diagrams at the front, rather than the rear. Whilst the book is complete it is almost certainly misbound. Whether it was just this one copy or a whole batch remains unknown. Rather basic "fanzine" type production values. A few dark stpots and some wear to covers, edges darkened, tiny tear at upper edge of rear cover, text pages bright and clean. Overall a clean VG or better copy of this unusual if not unique publication. Item #69760
