While at his Scottish retreat at Boleskine in 1903, Aleister Crowley decided to amuse his wife, Rose, and their friends by writing a pornographic tale, with an intention of writing one new section each day. He concocted a tale that managed to be marvelously creative, and utterly repugnant, at the same time. The protagonist is no less than an Archbishop. Many contemporary figures were also made objects of satire, although they were also rendered "nameless" by the use of elision, or omitted letters. 208 pages, Limited to 418 hand numbered copies in a first class binding. Octavo. OUT OF PRINT. Item #19054
