This is an excellent compendium of the major works found in Crowley's great masterpiece of occult knowledge - The Equinox, a periodical which declared the Law of the New Aeon of Thelema. Gems from the Equinox is divided into seven sections on themes such as: The Book of the Law, Yoga, Magick, and Sex Magick etc and there is something for all students and scholars of Magick and Crowley's works in this concise collection. Israel Regardie has done a fine job on this volume of illumination, yet how can it ever compare to that superior star which is the Equinox?
There are some omissions which I feel should have been included, such as: The Temple of Solomon the King, John St John, Across the Gulf, The Rites of Eleusis, The Herb Dangerous, and The Soldier! and the Hunchback?... - yes, these are available elsewhere and space is always a factor, yet to have them all in one volume would be a wonder indeed!
But we must forgive Mr Regardie for reducing the greatest periodical ever written in the English language concerning magical instruction, into a mere work of art and beauty in one extraordinary volume, of which, I'm sure Crowley would have approved (despite the omissions)!

Regardie chooses his selections well, as you might expect from one so advanced and respected as he was. Those who cannot afford the full set of Equinox volumes would do well to purchase this book.

Having lost the original edition by Llewelyn (1974), I was anxious to replace it and chose this edition instead of the other one. The book arrived on time and met my expectations. Being a fan of Crowley's work, I purchased the republication of Samuel Weisers' 'The Equinox' volumes back in the 1990s, so I already have most of his writings. This is just a nice handy volume to carry around and dip into occasionally. And for the price, it is well worth purchasing.

To put it simply the whole book is a journey into ones moral fiber the very core of our very existance. The precipates illistrated form the core of magik and its practise.
