Aleister Crowley and the Hidden God


Kenneth Grant

The reprinting of the Typhonian Trilogies continues with the second volume in the series, Aleister Crowley and the Hidden God.

Aleister Crowley and the Hidden God was first published by Muller in 1973, and subsequently reissued with an errata page by Skoob Publishing in 1992. A second, enhanced edition was issued by Starfire Publishing in 2013. This second edition was freshly typeset, incorporating the errata from the Skoob reissue, together with further corrections noted subsequently in Kenneth Grant's personal copy of the book. The second edition appeared in an octavo format of 253 pages, with a frontispiece, a twenty-page section of plates, illustrated endpapers and a full-colour dustjacket. Where possible, plates were rephotographed, some presented in colour for the first time; also included were some previously unpublished drawings and paintings by Steffi Grant.

Artwork for two of the plates has been rephotographed, since the original drawings by Spare were not previously available but have recently come to light. Apart from this, the forthcoming publication is a direct reprint of the second edition. The reprint will be available in two formats: hardback, bound in black cloth and with a dustjacket; and paperback, with a sturdy cover. Both formats will be sewnbound on good-quality paper.
