London: Neville Spearman, 1979. FIRST EDITION. A Very Good Cloth Copy, free of marking, in well worn, now mylar protected dust jacket. Edited by Stephen Skinner who writes, "These diaries were written by Aleister Crowley after his expulsion by Mussolini from his abbey of Thelema in Cefalu in Sicily. The records consolidate the work which Crowley initiated in Cefalu and explore more deeply the various techniques of cabbalistic and sexual magic as well as his contact with the Arab magic of North Africa where he spent some years. As an accurate and scientific record of consistent and well-documented magical practice there is little to equal Crowley's diaries, they are in fact the raw data from which, as Crowley had hoped, the science of magic will rise from the art which it has so long been." [vi], 252 pages, indexed. Tall octavo. (Item ID: 16180)
