Review by Lee Prosser - email@example.com
Considered one of the most important collection of Qabalistic texts ever written, this book is in print with three of Crowley's most influential and important texts. Edited and with an introduction by Dr. Israel Regardie, these three texts are Gematria, 777, and Sepher Sephiroth.
These hard-to-locate and oftentimes out-of-print classics are well worth the reader's time for reading, study, and for those interested in the mystical literature of the Qabalistic texts. The writings reveal the inquisitive scholar and genius of Crowley.
Gematria, reprinted from "The Temple of Solomon the King," details in-depth the essential definitions and explanations of what has become known as the theoretical practical Qabalistic number analysis and philosophy. Also included is Crowley's remarkable "An Essay in Number," which gives Crowley's unique insights into key numbers and techniques related to magickal work. Safeguards for those who would venture into this area of knowledge are also included for protection.
777 contains in a concise format an overview of the major world religions use of symbolism. There is also the system of correspondence for the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. Essentially, this is Crowley's analysis of all religion, and practical occultism. Its appearance in 1909 electrified the occult world with Crowley's insights.
The third text in the collection is the Sepher Sephiroth. This is a dictionary listing hundreds of Hebrew words. These Hebrew words are arranged by numerical value.
A fine reading experience, it will give readers a look at the Qabalistic writings by one of its early masters. Aleister Crowley created some of his finest writings in this collection.
