Diary of a drug fiend by Aleister Crowley( Book )

47 editions published between 1922 and 2016 in English and Russian and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a true story ... It is a terrible story; but it is also a story of hope and of beauty. Written by Aleister Crowley, Diary of a Drug Fiend tells the story of young Peter Pendragon and his lover Louise Laleham, and their adventures traveling through Europe in a cocaine and heroin haze. The bohemian couples' binges produce visions and poetic prophecies, but when their supply inevitably runs dry they find themselves faced with the reality of their drug addiction. Through the guidance of King Lamus, a master adept, they use the application of practical Magick to free themselves from addiction. Released in as his first published novel in 1922 and dubbed?a book for burning? by the papers of the time, Diary of a Drug Fiend reveals the poet, the lover, and the profound adept that was Aleister Crowley

Magick in theory and practice by Aleister Crowley( Book )

41 editions published between 1929 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Magic is the Highest, most Absolute, and most Divine Knowledge of Natural Philosophy, advanced in its works and wonderful operations by a right understanding of the inward and occult virtue of things; so that true Agents being applied to proper Patients, strange and admirable effects will thereby be produced. Whence magicians are profound and diligent searchers into Nature; they, because of their skill, know how to anticipate an effect, the which to the vulgar shall seem to be a miracle." The Goetia of the Lemegeton of King Solomon. "Wherever sympathetic magic occurs in its pure unadulterated form, it is assumed that in nature one event follows another necessarily and invariably without the intervention of any spiritual or personal agency. Thus its fundamental conception is identical with that of modern science; underlying the whole system is a faith, implicit but real and firm, in the order and uniformity of nature. The magician does not doubt that the same causes will always produce the same effects, that the performance of the proper ceremony accompanied by the appropriate spell, will inevitably be attended by the desired results, unless, indeed, his incantations should chance to be thwarted and foiled by the more potent charms of another sorcerer. He supplicates no higher power: he sues the favour of no fickle and wayward being: he abases himself before no awful deity. Yet his power, great as he believes it to be, is by no means arbitrary and unlimited..."

Portable darkness : an Aleister Crowley reader by Aleister Crowley( Book )

5 editions published between 1989 and 2011 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first book to tackle the formidable task of collecting the best of Crowley's voluminous lifework. While many of the details of Crowley’s flamboyant life have been well documented, his position as the major intellectual figure on the occult has often been eclipsed by his own notoriety. Infamous for scandalizing society on both sides of the Atlantic, Crowley devoted his life to the study of Qabalah, gematria, numerology, astrology, myth, glyphs, yoga, and linguistics. His intense, methodical exploration of so immense and arcane a range of knowledge yielded a huge and challenging body of literature, an abstruse oeuvre. In bringing together Crowley’s best writings, editor Scott Michaelsen makes Crowleyan philosophy both accessible and intelligible. Here are those works which best display and illuminate Crowley’s razor-sharp insight and intellectual range. Organized thematically by Crowley’s favourite subjects, the power of language, yoga, sex, and Magick. Accompanied by Michaelsen’s cogent essays. Features material not included in the original Random House edition"--Publisher's description
Magick by Aleister Crowley( Book )

28 editions published between 1973 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on instruction from Liber ABA, Book 4, widely considered to be the magnum opus of 20th-century occultist Aleister Crowley. MAGICK. It is the chief secret of the Ancients, and if the keys have never been actually lost, they have certainly been little used. The holders of those keys have always kept very quiet about it. This has been especially necessary in Europe, because of the dominance of persecuting churches. Again, the confusion of thought caused by the ignorance of the people who did not understand it has discredited the whole subject. It is now our task to re-establish this science in its perfection. To that end is the aim of this book."--Page 4 of cover

The Parisian prowler : Le spleen de Paris, petits poèmes en prose by Charles Baudelaire( Book )

4 editions published between 1928 and 1995 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Edouard Manet to T.S. Eliot to Jim Morrison, the reach of Charles Baudelaire's influence is beyond estimation. In this prize-winning translation of his no-longer-neglected masterpiece, Baudelaire offers a singular view of 1850s Paris. Evoking a mélange of reactions, these fifty "fables of modern life" take us on various tours led by a flâneur, an incognito stroller. Through day and night, in gleaming cafés and filthy side streets, this alienated yet compassionate esthete muses on the bizarre in the commonplace, the sublime in the mundane. As the work reveals a teeming metropolis on the eve of great change, we see a Paris as contradictory, surprising, and ultimately unknowable as our guide himself. Complemented by period illustrations, The Parisian Prowler is an essential companion to Les Fleurs du Mal and other works by the father of modern poetry.--From publisher description
