West Palm Beach FL: Sekmet Books, 2009. First Edition. Softcover. Large octavo. 112pp. Illustrated wrappers. Cover photo by Illia Tulloch. SIGNED by the late Jim Wasserman and his co-author, wife, Nancy, on the half-title page. The true first edition of this work, preceeding the various "limited editions" which followed. "Drawing on nearly half a century of regular performance of the Gnostic Mass—and the countless classes and training sessions they have conducted during their O.T.O. careers—the authors offer a coherent look at the ritual described by Aleister Crowley as 'the central ritual of [the O.T.O.’s] public and private celebration.' With no attempt to 'improve' upon the teachings of the Master, they elucidate a method of performing the Mass whose entire rationale is a strict adherence to the instructions given in Liber XV. The authors have striven to understand the meaning of Crowley’s text—penned in the white-hot fury of his 1913 inspiration—and extract the relevant spiritual teachings embedded within this elegant ritual." Touch of shelf-wear, a little rubbing to the edges, still near-Fine condition. Item #70000
