THE ALEISTER CROWLEY DESK REFERENCE by J. Edward Cornelius & – 2nd Edition: Revised and Enlarged Limited Edition Hardcover

$350.00

“The Aleister Crowley Desk Reference” is the most comprehensive alphabetical guide to the writings of “the Beast” ever created. While its primary purpose was to allow the reader to trace the various appearances in print of any published work by Aleister Crowley, it is much more than a simple cross-reference, and the listings are enlivened with bibliographical and historical detail that is sure to delight and amuse even the most jaded Crowleyphile. The sometimes baffling system of “Liber” numbers and classifications are clearly laid out in a series of Appendices.

Comprising nearly 400 pages and many thousands of listings, this revised edition of “The Aleister Crowley Desk Reference” is the most comprehensive alphabetical guide to the writings of “the Beast” ever created. While its primary purpose was to allow the reader to trace the various appearances in print of any published work by Aleister Crowley, it is much more than a simple cross-reference, and the listings are enlivened with bibliographical and historical detail that is sure to delight and amuse even the most jaded Crowleyphile. The sometimes baffling system of “Liber” numbers and classifications are clearly laid out in a series of Appendices.

The principal editor of the text, J. Edward Cornelius, is of course well known in Thelemic circles, not least for his editorship of the “Red Flame” series of journals in which “The Aleister Crowley Desk Reference” first appeared. The contributing editor, the late Andrew Drylie, was also an authority on Crowley’s works and was co-author of the “Crowley Cross-Index” (1976), the first modern work to systematically explore the publishing history of his texts. The hardcover version of this second edition sold out almost immediately upon release
