Harper A4.e. - First edition. Copy No. 299 of an limited edition of 1000 hand-numbered copies. - Now for Reality „Was the title of the frontispiece that appeared in Austin Osman Spare’s book The Focus of Life published in 1921. It was also the title of the first of a series poems which Aleister Crwoley later wrote to accompany Spare’s illustrations for the book. The present volume comprises the complete text and illustrations of The Focus of Life, re-set to incorporate the first ever publication of Aleister Crowley’s attendant poems. Now for Reality is thus a unique fusion of the artistry and occult vision of two of the twentieth century’s greatest magicians, Aleister Crowley and Austin Osman Soare. Included in this volume is an introductory essay on the relationship between Spare and Crowley by Keith Richmond, a student of both men’s work“ (from dust jacket). - Umschlag minimal berieben, Vortitel mit Besitzerstempel, sonst gutes Exemplar.
