I have been carefully considering Crowley's life and work for many years and I have concluded for myself that he was a psychopath. But all Rosicrucian/Masonic types are not necessarily psycho-paths, but this one is.What a megalomaniac.

I have the 1974 version, the sixth printing (1980) which has the more usual cover (The Universe on aquamarine).
I can't speak highly enough about this book, or Aleister Crowley's tarot cards.
