Magick In Theory and Practice [ Also known as Book 4. Part III ]; Subscriber's Edition.
Paris: Lecram Press, 1929 [ 1930 ]. Subscriber's Edition. Hardcover Quarto (10 x 8 inches), XXXIV + 436 pp. Maroon buckram with gilt title etc to spine, top edge gilt. The best issue (bound in buckram with top edge gilt) of the first hardbound edition of Crowley's magnum opus, "Magick in Theory and Practice." Crowley originally had the book issued in four parts, each in paper wrappers, and with an additional color plate, but was apparently disatisfied with the result, and had the plate removed, a new title page prepared, and had most copies disbound and rebound in a durable cloth or buckram, to make this, the "Subscriber's Edition." Boards slightly bowed and a bit faded, mostly to spine, a bit of light shelf-rubbing with a few very faint marks to cloth from handling, corners very lightly bruised. Edges of text block darkened. Endpaper unenevenly browned, pages very lightly toned as usual, a hint of ripping to first few leaves. Still a tight, clean, VG+ copy, in a FACSIMILE of the scarce dust jacket (the facsimile seems to have been made from colour photocopies. It is quite well done, and now protected by a removable mylar sleeve). A large heavy volume, will require additional shipping to that automatically quoted. Item #71014
