The Teitan Press. Inc. was incorporated in Illinois in 1985 by Aleister Crowley scholar Martin P. Starr, and his business partner, Frank Winston. In the years that followed they produced an impressive selection of books. These included new editions of Crowley’s Konx om Pax, Snowdrops from a Curate’s Garden, The Winged Beetle, The Scented Garden, his translation of Baudelaire’s Little Poems in Prose, as well as first printings of Crowley’s Scrutinies of Simon Iff, and Golden Twigs, and of course Martin’s acclaimed biography of W. T. Smith, The Unknown God .
After two decades of gentlemanly publishing, The Teitan Press, Inc. was dissolved in December 2006, and custodianship of the imprint was passed to Weiser Antiquarian Books. A year later the first book to be produced under their management came off the presses: Inside Solar Lodge, Outside the Law, by Frater Shiva.
