Achterflaptekst:

Aleister Crowley's Magick, the complete book four parts I-IV. Second revised edition. Edited, annotated, and introduced by Hymenaeus Beta XI° Frater Superior; O.T.O.

Aleister Crowley devoted twenty-five years to writing and producing the four parts of this book. It is his magnum opus, in which he systematically expounds the mystical and magical theories and techniques taught in his magical orders, the A.·.A.·. and O.T.O.

This profusely illustrated new edition brings together the complete texts of all four parts of Liber ABA (Book 4) in one volume under the overall title Magick. This edition incorporates Crowley's own additions, corrections and annotations, and restores dozens of passages omitted from the first editions.

Magick is the fundamental textbook of modern magick in the New Æon. It also has invaluable teachings for students of Yoga and meditation. Crowley mastered the practices of Yoga during his studies in the East, and writes about them lucidly, without recourse to the imprecise language of mysticism.

Beginning with a discussion of the universal origin of world religions in mystical revelation, Magick then explores the theory and practice of mysticism and magick in the light of modern scientific thought. Crowley's own revelation, The Book of the Law, is then treated as a case study, with an autobiographical study of the events leading to its reception.

Extensively cross-referenced and annotated, this edition features over 100 diagrams and photographs, as well as a glossary, bibliography, and detailed index. This second revised one-volume edition features revisions based on new typescripts for a more accurate text than all earlier editions, and it includes a revised A.·.A.·. curriculum, a new syllabus of O.T.O. papers, and an important, previously-unpublished A.·.A.·. paper.

This one-volume edition of Aleister Crowley’s most important work has been produced in keeping with the author’s stated goal of teaching meditation and magick to beginners. 

Part I: Mysticism is a clear introduction to the fundamentals of mysticism and meditation, with special emphasis on Yoga. Each meditative practice and state of consciousness is discussed in clear language that is easily grasped by Western students. It also explores the universal origin of world religions in mystical revelation. 

Part II: Magick: Elementary Theory systematically explains the meaning and purpose of the instruments, weapons, furniture, and regalia employed in ceremonial magick. 

Part III: Magick in Theory and Practice gives 28 theorems that form the practical keys to magick, and demonstrates their application in daily life by showing how every willed act is an act of magick. After a comprehensive outline of the Qabalistic, scientific and philosophical foundations of magick, Crowley explores its formulae and the essential procedures of banishing, purification, consecration, and invocation. He shows how their right use leads to initiation and the accomplishment of the Great Work. Other chapters deal in depth with the magical memory of past lives, the astral plane, divination, alchemy, and other subjects. This second revised edition is based on Crowley’s own corrected typescript, which gives the most accurate text yet published, and restores passages and notes omitted from all earlier editions.

Part IV: Thelema: The Law (The Equnox of the Gods) gives an autobiographical account of how Crowley came to receive the cornerstone of Thelema, The Book of the Law, and a new appendix discusses its cosmographical, ethical, and religious implications. In addition to the text of The Book of the Law and its Comment, this edition features a digitally-scanned facsimile of its original manuscript, as well as color photography of the Stèle of Revealing. This second revised edition is based on a new and corrected typescript that has made possible a more reliable text than all earlier editions, and has restored lost passages and notes. 

The appendices give numerous rituals, Qabalistic reference tables and diagrams, reading lists, and other instructional papers to assist the student in beginning practical work in meditation and magick, including the most important preliminary instruction papers of the A.·.A.·.. New appendices provide supplementary rituals and texts. 

This new edition incorporates Crowley’s own additions, corrections, and annotations for a planned new edition that has - until now - remained unpublished. It also restores dozens of passages lost in all earlier editions, by returning to the original manuscripts and typescripts. It is extensively cross-referenced, annotated and indexed, and Crowley’s sources and authorities are thoroughly documented. 

The editor’s introduction explores the author’s spiritual and philosophical development that led to the curious genesis of the work, and documents his 25-year struggle to produce all of its four parts. It also surveys his own critical appraisal of the work.
