THE BOOKS OF THE BEAST

Timothy d'Arch Smith publisher: Mandrake of Oxford Category: Crowleyana / Aleister Crowley / Publishing History ISBN 9781869928179 Paperback £10.99 / $22 ORDER THIS BOOK

Timothy d’Arch Smith is a well-known bibliographer, reviewer and antiquarian bookseller with a special interest in the by-ways of literature, notably the occult and the curious.

For Aleister Crowley a book was a talisman and their every part right down to colour, dimension, and price was symbolic. He also used magical techniques to gain literary success–thus new editions of Crowley’s writing multiply daily, tantalizing the bibliographer. All the more indispensable is this authoritative guide to his magical first editions.
Timothy d’Arch Smith, widely acknowledged as a leading expert on Crowley and on underground literature, offers several shorter articles on:
*Oxford’s demonologist Montague Summers;
*R A Caton and his Fortune Press;
*Sexual prophet Ralph Chubb;
*Florence Farr;
*The British Library Private Case;
*and Timothy d’Arch Smith.
*For this new edition, he also adds an extra chapter on Crowley.

REVIEWS
”…one could hardly wish for a more stimulating guide…” -The London Magazine
”One of the more immediately striking things about the book is its gentle humour.” – Time Out
