He was one of the principal founders of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the Aerojet Corp. He was also an occultist and one of the first Americans to take a keen interest in the writings of English author and Thelema religious movement founder Aleister Crowley. This volume is a posthumous compilation of instructive essays on the social theories and ontological implications of his occultism, directed to the lay reader. Published in a small run by William Breeze s imprint 93 Publishing. The vertical orientation of the cover gives way to oblong printing of interior text. Large inscription in red ink to the front flyleaf reads "To Raquel, May the Sophia speak thru u an inspired tongue, love, Andre Nov 1999". Pictorial wrappers show moderate shelfwear with heavy creasing along the spine. Front and back flyleaf soiled along the outer edge due to transfer of ink from the interior flaps of card panels.
