Description

Product Description

A unique resource for students of occultism, mysticism, Thelema, and magick that draws on Aleister Crowley’s writings as published in the periodical the Equinox.

In the original ten volumes of the Equinox, Alesiter Crowley succeeded in synthesizing the aim of religion and the method of science. Equinox—a periodical first published in 1909—mainly featured articles about occultism and magick, while several issues also contained poetry, fiction, plays, artwork, and biographies.

Israel Regardie''s selections from those ten original volumes are presented here in Gems of the Equinox. The book serves as a veritable textbook for the magickal orders A.A. and O.T.O. It includes material on Crowley''s magical order, magical rituals, yoga, invocations, and sex magick, among many other topics. Although it is written for the advanced practitioner, beginners will gain much from its many pages of wisdom, including yoga postures and breathing techniques, ceremonial rituals and meditations, an Enochian magick primer, and The Book of the Law.

From the Back Cover

This book belongs in the library of every student of the Western Tradition. * This essential reference and study text from Crowley''s body of work has been out of print for years.
* Israel Regardie selected the most important magical writings from the ten installments of the original Equinox and made them available to the student in one comprehensive collection.

About the Author

Aleister Crowley (1875–1947), was an English occultist, ceremonial magician, poet, painter, novelist, and mountaineer. He is the author of several books, including Book of Thoth, Diary of a Drug Fiend, Magick, Book of the Law, and 777 & Other Qabalistic Writings.

Israel Regardie, who died in 1985, is widely regarded for working to make Western mystery tradition material available to all.

This review is specifically a comparison of the New Falcon 2nd Edition, 1st Printing of "Gems" to other printings and editions. Those of us who invest in our books want and need comparisons of publishing facts and flaws. Please see other reviews regarding the most excellent content of this book-- I presume the reader has some familiarity Mr. Crowley, and has some idea of his body of work: this review is for bibliophile collectors.

The 2nd Edition, 1st Printing is not the edition pictured, pictured is the 2nd or 3rd Printing. The 1st Printing has a canvas spine and cardboard boards-- very durable. The 1st Printing is Smythe-Sewn, the 2nd and 3rd Printings are glue-bound-- this is to say that the backing/spine of the 1st Printing is very durable where the 2nd & 3rd Printings have a tendency to split at a point that is multiply opened, whereas the Smythe-Sewn edition will lay flat and open. the 2nd and 3rd Printings (pictured) have a non-flexible cardboard spine.

The 3rd Edition Gems from the Equinox: Instructions by Aleister Crowley for His Own Magical Order falls somewhere between the 1st Edition and the 2nd Edition 1st Printing in quality and durability. It is a burgundy red leatherette hardback, flexible spine and Smythe-sewn, durable and very affordable for the new student.

The edition that most collectors will eventually find that they want is the 1974 Llewellyn Red Leatherette; it''s eye-popping red color and silver leaf on the spine and cover makes is a beautiful edition and can be found here: Gems from the Equinox: Instructions by Aleister Crowley for his own magical order . It is also Smythe-Sewn. This 1st edition is often a little more expensive; The New Falcon 2nd edition 1st printing is not as pretty but it is just as durable.

Be careful which edition you choose. Compare prices. Compare sellers. Ask for photos. There are some bargains to be found in this title, choose carefully: This is *one* book on Magick that you will want to keep the rest of your life-- careful selection of available editions and printings will ensure you''ll find a copy that will last you that long.

A differently edited collection of the same material with additional currently out-of-print A.''.A.''. publications is available in paperback from Lulu.com as ''''Diamonds From The Equinox.''''

Great quality book. Will take me years to work through it but the print is sharp and big enough to read without squinting and it''s well-bound. Excellent collection.

Reviewed in the United States on May 20, 2018
Has a lot of good stuff in this, however I found that the very poor material used for the pages with them being very thin (like silicon paper), they tend to get stuck together and the book can get ruined if you try to fix it.

Most thorough and (most importantly) portable alternative to an Equinox set available. There are a few key articles missing (most importantly I think is "The Soldier and the Hunchback", as well as "John St. John") but those can thankfully be found online. If you can''t afford the enormous chunk of change to buy the full Equinox set and you''re like me and you can only tolerate online editions so far, it''s great.

This is not a review of the books contents (which is at times fantastic - in all senses of the word). But I bought this to replace an old musty edition I bought 2nd hand years ago. I suspect the old edition will outlive this edition, which feels more like a paperback by comparison. Since buying have seen this same version for sale in Glastonbury and the binding had broke away from the cover and was thus reduced. Apparently it was new stock, but had broken on their shelf. I am therefore concerned about using this edition - it hardly looks fit for purpose. The older edition had cloth in its binding, the cover was embossed and the paper of good quality. This is not.
