1) Artwork (Not from the Coil Collection).

a) Madame Isabelle de Steiger, Castles in the Air.

Images of this work can be viewed at:-
http://www.cadu.demon.co.uk/occultart/new/steiger.html

Madame Isabelle de Steiger was a prominent figure in the Golden Dawn. She joined early, in 1888, the Order’s first year of activity. She was initiatied into the Isis-Urania Temple in London. She was also active in the Horus Temple in Bradford and the Amon Ra Temple in Edinburgh. In 1896 she entered the second inner order, being initiated an Adeptus Minor. Indeed she painted the Vault of the Adepts for the Edinburgh Temple. Aside from being a respected artist and translator she was also an original author who had three books published (On the Gold Basis; Super-Humanity and Memorabilia) plus a number of articles. This painting, Castles in the Air, is of particular interest as it appears to be an Angel enthroned up an altar, with incense burning on either side of her. She sits upon a blue cloth, wearing pearls, blue stomes and a garland. She is holding both a chalice and a lotus wand (stylised versions of the Golden Dawn magical weapons) and before her is a vase with flowers. In front of her a book and beyond her there are suggestions of temples forming in the sky, the Castle in the Air. She is a figure of the divine feminine painted by a woman, an accomplished artist and an accomplished artist and important figure in the occult revival. It is dated 1910, is 36ins x 24ins. The surface is dirty, with some cracked and very small 1/16″ paint loss on her left wing tip. There is a 9in rip in the canvas at top right. The picture is in its original ornate gilded frame. #1650

b) Austin Osman Spare

Images of these two works can be found at:-
http://www.cadu.demon.co.uk/occultart/new/spare.html

i) Life Study.
16ins x 13ins, pastels on paper. Signed twice “AOS 1950” with the following inscribed on back board in Spare’s hand “Life Study’ (40 mins) by Austin Osman Spare. ’51”. Also written on backboard:- ” No.210 (crossed-out) Cat No. 190″ This may relate to the 1955 Archer Gallery Exhibition where the catalogue lists:- “190. Life Drawing. 210. Study” This picture would appear to be of the same model that Spare drew a number of times at this period. For instance Picture No. 14 in the Artist, Occultist, Sensualist catalogue of the 1999 Marx House exhibition is a pastel titled ‘Beefcake’ dated 1950 which seems to be the same man, as does another picture seen behind Spare in a photograph of the 1952 mansion House exhibition reproduced on page 24 of Zos Speaks #950

ii) Purgatorial Purge (Insatiable Desire)
Pastel & pencil on paper, 25ins x 19ins in original wooden frame. Initialled in pencil “AOS 55” Label on reverse “No. 27 Purgatorial Purge (Insatiable Desire) by Austin Osman Spare 1955”. This confirms that it is the item of that title listed in the catalogue of the Archer Gallery Exhibition 1955. One notes the sex magick sigil written in pencil on the man’s groin. #2400

2) The following books are all from the Coil Collection. The cutting edge avant-garde group Coil were always doing more than making music. There were also advancing and exploring culture.

This started life as an introduction to Carter’s works. It’s publication without reference to Carter is discusses and regretted in the anonymous preface, which also refers to the demise of Mandrake Press. Without explicitly saying so the anonymous author of the preface makes it clear that Lawrence’s publications on the subject should be regarded as plaigarism. Carter, of course, was an associate of Austin Osman Spare. VG Order No. 300236 #40

Aleister Crowley, Equinox of the Gods, (OTO 1936) BUT read on! 10.5ins x 8ins (xx) + 137pp Two coloured plates (of Stele of Revealing. Crowley issued two editions, in 1936 & 1937. However there were still surplus sets of sheets. Sometime after his death (c1960?) some of these original sets of sheets were chopped down somewhat and bound in maroon cloth with the AA sigil gilt blocked on front board. So we have the original high quality paper, somewhat reduced in size, bound without the rear pocket containing the loose sheets reproducing the manuscript of the Book of the Law which were present in Crowley’s editions and are referred to on the title page.

Aleister Crowley, Typescript, none 10 foolscap leaves typed on one side with holograph annotations. Not dated (probably 1970s) Appears to be typed up from items in the Yorke collection. Comprises:-
1) Invocation of Horus According to the Fivine Vision of Ourda the Seer. This has some variations from version printed in Equinox of the Gods. Most, but not all (for instance there is reference to a dance), can be accounted for by someone else attempting to read Crowley’s handwriting.
2) “Supreme Ritual” which is totally different to the text usually ascribed that title. A short enigmatic ritual. Apparently unpublished
3) Ritual (Beth) 2, To have Any Knowledge. Invocation of Ra Hoor Kuit from same notebook as invocation of Horus published in Equinox of the Gods. Apparently unpublished
4) “of the spell” a text which gives a sentence describing the mystical nature of 35 of the minor cards of the tarot pack
5) Book of Results (fragment). Frustratingly the frragmnent ends just as it starts to supplly detail not in the version published in Equinox of the Gods
6) Way of the Tao – Draft of an A.’.A.’. Ritual
7) A short fragment of Diary (1907)
8) Aphorism of Ma Ki Nan upon the Trigrams of the Holy Kwaw being the Mutations of the Tao with the Yin and the Yang. Apparently unpublished. (Yorke – 1st draft of Linber XXVII)

The title on the title page plus the Prologue anf Colophon are printed in red. Embellished with woodcust which are anonymous but probably by Dennis West. Last pages carrying publishers details has vignette of satyrs dancing to pan pipes. The typeface and book design is truly elegant. Neuburg was Crowley’s magickal partner in a series of sex magick workings in Paris and North Africa which were very challenging. He fell out with Crowley and his poems have a rustic gentleness quite alien to the Beast. However, despite his rejection of Crowley the prophet one can see Thelemic themes. The prologue reads “Herein are little mirrors, but they are of the world; tonguefuls of words but new words of a new world, newly coloured by the Angel of a new time. For a new Age is ever born from the past. The future alone is ancient upon the Spiral.” This copy has the following inscription by the author:- Dear David McLean / I scribble again,/ Trusting my fist won’t cause you pain. / Whatever my fist. / my hand is true/ nd with this Book / I give it to you / Victor neuburg; Steyning Sussex vij .: xij .: mcmxxvij.
