Title: Magick In Theory And Practice
Author: Aleister Crowley
Published: 1974 Gordon Press
Format: Hardcover

Many consider this work by Crowley to be the foremost book on ceremonial magick written in the twentieth century. It was written ‘especially for beginners’ (!) as Part 3 of Book 4 (Liber ABA). The original was privately printed in 1929 after Crowley failed to find a publisher in London.

Gordon Press (a division of Krishna Press Publishers) is a fascinating byway in the world of Aleister Crowley publishing. Their Crowley books were of a standard size and were bound in red – in this case, red cloth. Apparently, their wide-ranging list included substantial works on anarchism and technical manuals for explosives.

Be that as it may, this copy of Aleister Crowley’s masterwork is substantial (436 pages) and handsome. It appears to be a facsimile of the much more common Castle Books edition.

One of the scarcer of the Gordon Press series, this copy is near fine. It’s tight, clean and in remarkable condition for a book printed four decades ago. There’s a couple of very minor blemishes on the front cover (see photo) but is otherwise pretty much unmarked, internally and externally.
