Aleister CrowleyÕs black magic masterpiece 'The Book of the Law' is the central sacred text of Thelema, written or ÔchanneledÕ by Crowley in 1904, who claimed it was dictated to him by a disembodied entity named ÔAiwassÕ while he spent the night in the King's Chamber of the Great Pyramid of Giza. 'The Book of Lies' consists of 93 chapters, each of which consists of one page of text. The chapters include a question mark, poems, rituals, instructions, and obscure allusions and cryptograms. The subject of each chapter is generally determined by its number and its corresponding Qabalistic meaning.
This single-volume edition unites two centerpieces of twentieth-century occult thinking by "the wickedest man in the world." Notorious mystic and esoterist Aleister Crowley (1875–1947) remains a towering figure among occultists. His long and noteworthy career encompassed countless writings and the creation of his own religion, Thelema, the chief precept of which was "Do what thou wilt." Crowley asserted that the content of The Book of the Law was dictated to him from the spirit world, and the 1909 publication formed the basis for Thelema. The volume's 1912 successor, The Book of Lies, features aphorisms and paradoxes that invoke the symbolism of Freemasonry and other traditions. The Book of the Law and The Book of Lies continue to rank among Crowley's most widely read writings. Both books have exercised a vast influence on popular culture and the practice of magic, offering fascinating glimpses into the author's mystic pursuits.

For those interested in passing beyond the initiate stage, the reward offered by a deeper understanding of this challenging text is well worth the effort.This new 2018 illustrated edition of The Book of Lies from Kismet Publishing restores all of Crowley's original text, including the important plates of keys, sigils and diagrams crucial to cracking this century-old conundrum.
Included in this anthology are four of Crowley's seminal works: The Book of Lies, The Book of the Law, Magick, and Cocaine. Each title has been newly edited and revised based on the original manuscripts, restoring each work as it was intended to be read by Crowley.
