The Holy Books.
Dallas, TX: Sangreal Foundation, Inc., 1972. First Softcover Edition. Softcover. Octavo. 116pp. Pictorial wrappers. The first softcover edition of this selection of the Thelemic "Holy Books." The Sangreal edition was first published in hardcover in 1969 - and then reissued in both hardcover and softcover editions in 1972. As has often been observed, this edition could more accurately have been entitled 'Three Holy Books', as it contains only Liber Liberi vel Lapidis Lazuli Sub Figura VII, Liber Cordis Cincti Serpente Vel LXV, & Liber DCCCXIII vel Ararita. Still, it was a ground breaking edition in terms of making these Holy Books available to a broader public - for many years it was the only relatively easy way to access these texts. Covers and edges and folds all quite rubbed, spine creased, page edges darkened, pages toned but unmarked. A tight & unmarked near VG copy. Item #70982
