It's not clear to me whether the later editions of the original text are scanned, printed from internet archives, or photocopies themselve of the Dover or Castle facsimile editions. Maybe someone can chime in. The later editions on Amazon are priced economically, but some reviewers claim they lack the pictures (gravures) making me think they aren't photographically reproduced and hence are at risk for typos.

In this work Crowley clearly explains his position on black magic as well as the basics of his own magickal system of Thelema. The clue to the absurd accusations of black magic lies in one of Crowley's other essays (An initiated interpretation of ceremonial magic) in which he states "Magic is a mirror, wherein one who sees muck, is muck."
Aleister Crowley devoted his life to the pursuit of Life, Love and Liberty, which is why he is loathed by the powers that be and the gutter press, who want to keep you in your place so that you can serve their iniquitous purposes.
Readers of any of Crowley's works also need to remember that he had an all-pervading sense of humour and often dealt with delicate or esoteric matters symbolically rather than literally.
I'll have always been a little sceptic when Mr. Crowley is was concern .
But this book has been an eye opener for my.
The man has rely something on his mind he wish to give to his fellow people .
