An interesting study of the esoteric symbolism, cosmic proportion, and sacred geometry present in Chatres cathedral. Covers a little marked and edge worn with a couple of light creases to front cover. A couple of page corners previously turned. V.good - £8

M035AAA. Choucha, N, Surrealism and the Occult, 1st edition, Mandrake 8vo pbk. 1991, 138pp including index, with 16pp plates included in the pagination. A sound concise study. Includes material on Austin Osman Spare, Max Ernst, etc. Some light edge-wear to covers, light crease to lower corner of front cover, contents clean and tight. Very good £3.50

M35DDE. Clydesdale, R, Secret Wisdom, 1st edition thus, Arcturus 2009, 4to, pictorial French folded wraps, 208pp including index, with a frontispiece and many illustrations in the text. A popular account of occult societies and arcane knowledge through the ages, spanning from the ancient mystery schools to the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. Near mint £2.50

M39Z. (Crowley, A), Cole, R.T, Liber L. + vel Bogus (The Real Confession of Aleister Crowley) Sub Figura LXXX, 1st edition, first issue, privately published & distributed 2014, 8vo, printed laminated boards, 246pp + advertisement leaf, with facsimile documents and other illustrations within the text, edited by Sadie Sparkes, number 74 of a hand numbered limited edition of 100 copies only, with bookmark, and postcard signed by the author stating the limitation loosely inserted as issued. Cole’s ‘long awaited expose’ of Crowley predictably paints him as a raging psychopath who consciously invented the Book of the Law and the religion of Thelema. Whereas he raises some interesting points through the examination of original documents, has been rightly criticised for very selective use of the evidence he presents, and consequently is unlikely to have ardent Thelemites deserting in their droves following his revelations. Long out of print in this, the only hard cover issue, a near mint copy in like d/w of an already very scarce item £100

M40E. Crowley, A, Gems from the Equinox, 1st edition, 1st printing, Llewellyn 1974, 8vo, red faux leather boards with silver titles and image to spine and front, 34 + 1134pp + 24 plates (on ordinary paper); edited and with a preface by Israel Regardie; a pretty comprehensive selection of Crowley’s own instructions for his magical Order drawn from his published works on Yoga, ritual magick and sex magick. Spine panel a little dulled, a couple of minor bumps of boards, edges of text block a little browned and spotted in places, trivial spot to title page, otherwise internally clean and tight, a very good copy of the increasingly uncommon first printing (no d/w issued) £95

M40R. Crowley, A, The Works of Aleister Crowley volume one: Liber Agape, De Arte Magica, 1st and only edition thus, Kadath Press, no date (1986), 8vo, stapled printed card wraps, 52pp, with an integral frontispiece portrait, together with an introduction and explanatory notes by Ray Sherwin. Two rituals of sexual magick, Liber Agape having been compared with the manuscript version in the Warburg institute with variations specifically noted by the compiler. It makes this edition a pretty comprehensive one for practical study, nicely augmented by the insightful commentary. Spine portion browned, rear cover a little stained, edges of text block soiled, slightly affecting the odd margin, light staining to a couple of pages otherwise textually clean and tight. Overall, still a just about good + copy of an increasingly scarce item £35

M40X. Crowley, Amado, The Wrath of Aleister Crowley, 1st edition, Diamond 8vo pbk. 1994, 4 + 4 + 168pp.  The last in a trilogy of books detailing personal reminiscences of the teachings of the author’s alleged famous father, Aleister Crowley.

A practical guide to magic within the western tradition, based on a number of techniques drawn from Alexandrian Wicca to the Kabbalah, and psychology to crystal magic; small dent to lower part of outside edge of rear cover, minor browning to edges of text block, slightly affecting tips of margins, otherwise internally and externally clean and tight. A very good copy of an increasingly uncommon book in like (a few trivial edge creases, small bruise to outer fold of rear panel) d/w, and signed copies are very scarce £75
