Item specifics

Author:

Aleister Crowley

Language:

English

Format:

Hardback

Date of Publication:

1900-1949

Non-Fiction Subject:

Occult

The Equinox of the Gods.... By Aleister Crowley.

This Book is in very good condition... no loose pages or staining.
The final few pages have a small crease in them but this must have occurred at time of printing and is not caused by damage at a later date. I purchased this as a first edition many moons ago
but this cannot be so as the first edition was published in white buckram, whilst this copy resides in a maroon cover with gold inlay. Printed in Great Britain by Western Printing Services Ltd ,Bristol. and dated 1936
it does not have the folder at the back of the book containing the facsimile handwritten sheets of the book of the law nor the print of the stele of revealing at the front.On the opening page at top right it has various pencil markings which indicate a price in dollars and  1st ed.(see picture 2 ).  My belief is that this is either a second edition first print from 1937 or a later 50's rendition incorporating the 1936 original printed paper. Whatever proves to be the case, i will leave it to you to determine.

Bid what thou wilt shall be the whole of the auction. 

happy bidding,
Steve.

Many thanks to Crowely666 for putting me straight on the history of this particular edition.

I have lifted some of his message to me and it is as follows:
The equinox of the gods volume you have is indeed a 1950s reprint. It is known as the Germer edition and was published by Karl Germer, Crowleys closest student, after he discovered a number of unbound 1st edition book blocks left over from the 1936 first edition. He had them bound and released. A number of them had the envelope at the back with the loose pages of liber Al and some didn't. There are a few variations of this edition as not all the unbound book blocks were complete hence the reason some have the manuscript and some don't.

So now we know :-)

Thanks again,
Steve.
