Review by Fr. Ash
The contents of this edition are also unlike all others in that it is a cut-and-paste combination of two early editions—one from 1926 and the other from 1938. The primary features are the familiar typescript with the inclusion of the manuscript, reproduced with excellent definition. There is also a full color version of the Stele of Revealing, both front and back, along with Crowley's poetic paraphrases of the inscriptions.
However, there is more here. The five section "Introduction" is back, written by "O.M." There are other little treasures, including a second "Introductory Note" written by Ankh-af-na-khonsu himself. A short example gives its general flavor: “For as the experience of these one-and-twenty years has shewn too terribly, the Book cannot be ignored. It has leavened Mankind unaware: and Man must make thereof the Bread of Life.” Lastly, the editor includes thorough references and a short description of the source materials.
The moment I saw this edition, I said "wow!" This isn't just another printing of Liber Legis—it is a work of Art. HB has really outdone himself this time, letting his love of book design shine through. It is a beautiful addition to the bookshelf that every Thelemite will enjoy.
