Eight Lectures on Yoga
by Aleister Crowley
1972

This edition is in great shape for a book that will be turning 50 soon. The front cover is slightly bowed outward, but this could probably be corrected with a little weight. A previous owner's name is neatly written in pen in the front cover. The end papers show some slight discoloration on the corners were the blue of the binding is coming through.  The interior is clean and unmarked. And most importantly, it still has a whiff of that wonderful old book smell. I really appreciate the striking simplicity of the cover design. It is worthy of display. 
Altogether, this is a handsome vintage presentation of an important work made all the more special by the historical significance of this particular edition.

Up for sale is the 1972 Sangreal hardcover edition of Aleister Crowley's or, if you prefer: Mahatma Guru Sri Paramahansa Shivaji's Eight Lectures on Yoga. 
Besides being clear, informative, and thoughtful this book may also be Crowley's funniest - making it a joy to read. 
Sangreal Foundation out of Dallas, Texas produced the first edition since the first edition of this important work.  Under the guidance of Israel Regardie, Sangreal published a handful of important Crowley works (Book 4, Yoga, Vision & Voice) in the late 60s and early 70s, a time when there was very little quality occult material being produced. These editions were the forerunners of the great occult revival of the 70s and it is difficult to imagine what the modern occult landscape would look like if Regardie's editions had not revitalized interest in the writings of Aleister Crowley. (I mean Mamahatma Guru Sri P-jazz Shivaji).
