Aleister Crowley (1875-1947), who claimed to be the re-incarnation of Dr. John Dee among others, lived in England from 1875 through 1947. He is the author of several Weiser Books titles, including Book of Thoth, Diary of a Drug Fiend, Magick, Book of Lies, Book of the Law and 777 & Other Qabalistic Writings. He was a poet, mountaineer, secret agent, magus, libertine, and prophet - was dubbed by the tabloids "The Wickedest Man in the World."
This is one of those books that gets better with every reading.
No one can make Crowley understandable like Lon Milo Duquette, and for me his book is Rosetta Stone of The Book of Thoth and the Thoth Tarot.
"The Book of Thoth" is a great asset to any Tarot Library and a good place to start studying the System.
Highly Informative on a wide range of subjects, Fantastic Learning tool and springboard to other subjects.Published 2 months ago by Kurdt
Crowley gives me the willies along with pasty emo "its all in your mind" thelemites and hebrewic ceremonical magicians. Read morePublished 2 months ago by bamboo grove
Hard to read. The writer was a man of great thought but of questionable communication skills for this modern time. You will have to take care to read this book. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Andrea A. Allen
