London: First Impressions (Mandrake Press & Holmes), 1993. Limited to Seven Copies Only with errata slip, detailing the printer's error in printing a reproduction of Anais Nin's personal copy instead of Crowley's annotated Warburg copy. A FINE COPY in publisher's original gilt lettered black Aberlave cloth. Translation by Aleister Crowley, Twelve copperplate engravings de Bosschere originals. A rare publishing error, as Mandrake had the intention of issuing the facsimile text of Aleister Crowley's annotated copy of the 1928 First Edition. Not only did this not contain Crowley's annotations, but also those of Gerald Yorke. Another feature of this volume is the artwork from Anais Nin's copy, all of which she had hand-tinted. Plans went askew at the time of the initial printing, and several copies without the above mentioned annotations, except for Nin's tinted plates, and this because the printing was done from Nin's personal copy of the book Only a total of fourteen copies total were salvaged; seven being bound in leather, and the remaining seven copies were bound in cloth. Includes the original errata slip, signed by A. R. Naylor (the publisher), with an account of the problem. Octavo, . Illustrated with a section of plates. Overall in like new condition.
