First edition, uncut in publisher’s wrappers, of this amusingly eclectic collection of poems written by the occultist Aleister Crowley (1875–1947) while an undergraduate at Cambridge. 

The poems were for the most part published in Cambridge magazines, where ‘the reader’s attention was unpleasantly distracted by the dung heap on which these pearls were cast’ and are here collected to ‘[meet] the crying need of millions of what some people will call “undergrads”’ (Artiste’s Foreword, p. [v]). 

The volume is complete with the ‘to be torn off’ order slip for the forthcoming first volume of The Works of Aleister Crowley, available at 5s to entrants in a competition for essays on Crowley.
