Aleister Crowley, the self styled Beast 666, was one of the most notorious personalities of modern times-novelist, poet, magician, accomplished mountaineer, master of chess, voluptuary extraordinary, drug addict and, to his followers, the Logos of the New Aeon. Corrected Edition. Routledge & Kegan Paul 1986. illus 960pp hb dw faded & chipped otherwise vg+
Hardcover. Large octavo. 960pp. Black cloth with gilt title, etc. to spine, frontis, illustrations. The revised reprint of Crowley's autobiography which he had originally intended would be published in six volumes. Only two of the six 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 Confessions were published in this single volume abridged edition, edited by John Symonds and Kenneth Grant. Still one of the major biographical sources on Crowley, and essential to an understanding of his life and magick. Includes a Preface by Kenneth Grant not present in the earlier (1969) edition of the work, and numerous revisions. Cloth lightly rubbed and faded at edges, very slightly shaken, page edges and endpapers a bit browned. Still overall a clean VG copy in near VG dust jacket (Dust jacket panels rubbed, a bit chafed at edges, light chipping & a few small tears to spine ends and corners)
