The legendary Blue Equinox was Crowley’s first attempt to publicize the principles and aims of the magical secret society Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.) and its allied order the A.A. In it, Crowley laid out the esoteric, social, ethical, and philosophical ideas that he believed provided the framework for a new ethics and the liberated morality of the future. Upon publication, the book was threatened with suppression by the authorities of the day. Many of the papers in the Blue Equinox anticipated social liberties we tend to take for granted today.

 

About The Equinox original publications:

The Equinox appeared semiannually from the years 1909 through 1913. Volume II was never published, and vol. III:1 was the last in the regular serialized publications. After that, editions of the Equinox were published irregularly by various organizations and are best known by their book titles. All issues after III:5 were edited and released after Crowley’s death in 1947.

This is a limited edition reprint by Weiser Publishing of only 500 sets.
