Softcover. Large Octavo. 960pp. Large, thick paperback, b&w illustrations, editor's notes, index. Crowley had originally intended that his "Confessions" would be published in six volumes, but only two of these had been published before the Great Depression and various internal disputes led to the demise of the publishers. The project languished uncompleted throughout Crowley's lifetime, and it was not until 1969 that the somewhat abridged version of the full six volumes was published in a single volume edition, edited by John Symonds and Kenneth Grant. This is the paperback version of the (revised and corrected) second edition of that publication. It remains the major biographical source on Crowley, and essential to an understanding of his life and magick. Covers rubbed and lightly creased, edges chafed, paper browned (as common), light vertical creasing to spine. Still a solid, unmarked, VG copy.

This is a valued book because Aleister Crowley gives insights, though guarded, into his motives and objectives, as he recounts his colourful life. It is useful to remember that behind all the Razzamatazz he was completely dedicated to the Great Work.
