Orig. published in 1954 by Karl J. Germer, Crowley's successor (he had died in 1947) as Outer Head of the O.T.O. (Society Ordo Templi Orientis International), Germer died mysteriously in 1962, naming Marcelo Motta as his successor, though he did not learn of his status for 11 years, during which time Crowley's works were "shamelessly pirated" by Francis Regardie. The present volume represents the Original uncut version of this book, with 15,000 words that had been excised completely restored. It also contains commentary by Motta, as well as an essay, "Intelligence Services are Not Intelligent,'' which details the history of the O.T.O. since its founder's death & various attempts (eg, by the CIA & the Vatican) to destroy the Order.

        The Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri, Inferno, A Verse Translation by Tom Phillips With Images and Commentary [Dante's Inferno]; (Accompanied by the Thames and Hudson trade edition as a reading copy)

      Talfourd Press, London 1983 - No. 90 of 100 copies (total edition approximately 185), Elephant Folio - over 15" to 23" tall, 432 pp., Signed by Artist. Tom Phillips (b. 1937), an Oxford graduate, is one of the most prominent artists working today and his work is represented in most major collections of modern art around the world. He was inspired to create his visually stunning verison of Dante when he found a "lavish, red, gilded edition of Dante's 'Inferno' illustrated by Gustave Dore". His vision for this version was "to make the book a container for the energy usually expended on large scale paintings. The artist thus tries to reveal the artist in the poet and the poet helps to uncover / release the poet in the artist". As the LA Times wrote when reviewing the trade edition, "there is no doubt that Tom Phillips has captured Dante for our time. His prodigious achievement is not so much illustration as it is visual commentary, a fidelity to Dante's spirit at the occasional expense of the literal action of the poem." Mr. Phillips spent seven years creating this livre d'artiste, published in an edition of "approximately" 185 copies, 100 of which were sold as a boxed set. For his illustration and providing a new translation of the "Inferno" Phillips received the Frances Williams Memorial Prize in 1983; he also made a TV version of the Inferno with Peter Greenaway which won them jointly as directors the Italia prize. (N.B., above info from Mr. Phillips' web site and Wiki.) ***DESCRIPTION: Presented as unbound sheets contained in two hand-made buckram boxes, with 139 hors-texte illustrations done in intaglio, lithograph and silkscreen, with each illustration individually initialled by the artist; made up of thirty-four cantos, the title pages and the colophon; each canto is on three sheets (12 pages), making a total of 108 sheets (432 pages) in the book; page size is 16.5" by 12.5" (approximate); printed on 100% rag, acid-free, mould-made Inveresk (Somerset) paper, made and tinted to the artist's own specification and incorporating his signature as a watermark, by Inverest Mills, near Wells, Somerset. The two boxes are each covered in buckram, Volume I in olive green, Volume II in black, both have a line-drawing of Dante on the front and lettering on the spine, boxes lined with mauve decorated paper; box dimensions are 18" by 14" by 3" (approximate). ***CONDITION: Fine; each page clean, bright, and free of any marks or wear. The boxes have a slight amount of wear to the corners (professionally addressed to prevent further wear) and some light, stray soil marks, also a bit of wear to the inside paper lining. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that this set is extremely large and heavy, therefore additional postage may apply; please inquire for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        APARTHEID KILLS - FIGHT RESETTLEMENT

      MEDU Art Ensemble - Silkscreen and Lithograph. Unique. c.1983. 42 x 29.5 cm. Due to the fact that Thami Mnyele and 13 other cultural workers were murdered in Gabarone , Botswana by the SADF in the early hours of 14 June 1985 in a covert cross-border raid MEDU ceased to exist from this day forward. Their archives and workshops were destroyed and/or confiscated and brought back to South Africa as examples of communist inspired "art treason". As a result very few original posters survive today, in some cases one estimates less than 5 copies. In some cases only 50 or 80 copies were printed which were all made by hand and were usually silkscreened. Illustrated "The rationalism of nationalism?" published by Warren Siebrits, Johannesburg in 2008. pg27 (colour) and is the exact poster used for the exhibition and making of the catalogue. This particular poster is so rare that it did not form part of the collection exhibited at the Johannesburg Art Gallery in 2009. This poster is sold together with "The rationalism of nationalism?". The poster is in very good condition. Photos on request. ONCO (Or Nearest Cash Offer). Free Shipping Worldwide. Extra Charge for Courier Service.
