Gems from the Equinox. Instructions by Aleister Crowley for His Own Magical Order.

St. Paul, MN: Llewellyn Publications, 1974. First Edition. Hardcover. Large thick octavo. 1134pp. Red faux leather with silver embossed cover and spine. Illustrations, index. The first edition of Regardie's selection of Crowley's most important writings - 'all the magical writings' including of course Liber CCXX, "The Book of the Law" - from the monumental "Equinox" series. The book was published at a time when Crowley's magical writings were unavailable to most: the ten volume "Equinox" set had only been republished by Weiser for the first time two years earlier, and thus was difficult to find and beyond the budget of most. "Gems" along with the reprints of "Magick in Theory Practice," became one of the core resources for the emerging new generation of Thelemites in the 1970s. Light shelf-wear to covers, edges of text block a little darkened . Endpapers and pages lightly toned. One inch high rubber stamp imprints of a scorpion on the front paste-down, initial preface page, half-title and title-pages, one line of text in the illustrations list is highlighted, as is the caption of one illustration. Else a tight, unmarked VG+ copy (no dust jacket issued). Large heavy book - will require additional shipping to that automatically quoted. Item #71973
