CROWLEY, Aleister. The Book of the Law (technically called Liber al vel legis sub figura CCXX as delivered by XCIII = 418 to DCLXVI)

(Nashville, TN): Troll Publishing Co., 1980. Uncommon reprint of the original 1904, central sacred text of Thelema, written by Aleister Crowley in Cairo, Egypt. Although Crowley says that the author was an entity named Aiwass, whom he later referred to as his personal Holy Guardian Angel (or “Higher Self”). In his introduction to his edition of The Law is for All, Crowley’s former secretary Israel Regardie stated:

It really makes little difference in the long run whether The Book of the Law was dictated to [Crowley] by a preterhuman intelligence named Aiwass or whether it stemmed from the creative deeps of Aleister Crowley. The book was written. And he became the mouthpiece for the Zeitgeist, accurately expressing the intrinsic nature of our time as no one else has done to date. This a fine copy in a very good plus dust jacket with a short closed tear.
