The Invocation of Hoor - Aleister Crowley (Marcus Katz)
Cumbria, UK: Forge Press, 2010. First Edition. Softcover. Octavo. 66pp, b&w photos & illustrations, appendixes.
Very scarce, probably in low double figures, the copies in circulation. Complete transcript of Crowleys 1904 notebook, MSS27. The edition was swiftly withdrawn from sale, apparently due to copyright violations.
A transcription and reproduction, with commentaries and notes by Katz, of Crowley's manuscript notebook entitled "The Invocation of Hoor" preserved in the Yorke collection. The Crowley text comprises "The Invocation of Hoor" which preceded the reception of "The Book of the Law", "Ritual B2", "To Obtain LXV," Beelzebub Ritual, 3 pages of note on the minor arcana of the tarot," "The Book of Results." There is also a short note on the contents of the original notebook by Gerald Yorke.
Very good condition.

You can view the book condition at the link below. All you would need to do is send me an offer, after giving your eBay username in here. I will then accept.
Hope you get your price, but frankly it would be nice if such things were available, and at a reasonable cost.
Note that the Invocation of Hoor by Katz was an important part of Richard T. Cole's Liber L. vel Bogus which also referenced if I recall the suppression of the pamphlet by the OTO...
Whether one makes photocopies for oneself I suppose is one's business, especially as the genre is much about bibliophilia to which limited runs is part of the game, etc...
i guess I have not tried archive.org, yet, but I do posit that they follow proper copyright policies, thus maybe in a few decades copies will appear....It is nice to read the extracts of The Unknown God online though...
I agree, the costs for editions like the above are off the wall. Some quotes for the Unknown God are over £1000! The lowest price on the internet for Unknown God is just over £400. So I think my price is reasonable considering.
As for Invocation of Hoor.... not much to gauge that on as there are so few copies in circulation.
I am not in this to make money, just selling the books at a reasonable price, without sticking the arm in! Need to pay a few bills and sadly things need to be sold.
PS I might take crap photo images of IoH but I would not want copyright claims against myself also, if I shared them on....
Since placed it on eBay. £222 starting bid ONO.
Well two hundred and twenty two pounds converts to three hundred and eight dollars and thirty seven cents at this point in time.
Again my notice of the book was through Cole's Liber L. Vel Bogus which I think I heard of on these forums through one of your posts...
Yeah it would be nice to examine it, though Cole seemed to be pretty thorough in his examination he had with a certain confirmation bias...none the less its going out of print is tragic.
