New York NY: NV Temple Press, 1993. First Edition Thus. Softcover. Octavo. iv + 172 pp. Frontis and b&w illustrations. Edition limited to 169 hand-numbered copies, this being No. 128. This copy is also boldly SIGNED by Gerald Del Campo beneath the title, beneath which he has added, with another pen, his magical titles. The book itself is scarce collection of Crowley's renderings of Chinese texts comprising: Foreword; Tao Teh King; Yi King; and appendixes: a) Khing Kang King b) Hexagram Key c) Qabbalist Diagram. 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. The volume is particularly scarce as the spine is only glued, and many have fallen completely apart over the years. PLEASE NOTE This copy is overall VG+ BUT has some loose pages at the rear and like all copies of this edition it is fragile, and if it is not treated with great care the binding will crack and the pages come loose.
