The Progradior Correspondence, edited by Keith Richmond

Teitan Press has recently published The Progradior Correspondence, edited by Keith Richmond.

The text is comprised of ninety letters and documents that were exchanged between Aleister Crowley (Frater Progradior), Frank Bennett, and members of Crowley’s inner circle, including Charles Stansfeld Jones (Frater Achad), Leila Waddell, Leah Hirsig among others.

The letters discuss first hand accounts of the development of Thelema and efforts to promote its vehicles, the A.’. A.’. and the OTO.

From Teitan Press:

The correspondence began in 1910 when Bennett wrote to Crowley seeking his advice on the performance of “The Sacred Magic of Abra-Melin the Mage.” It continued through the years of The Equinox, through Crowley’s residence in the United States during the First World War, and on past the heydays of the Abbey of Thelema at Cefalu in the early 1920s. The exchange finally drew to a close in 1926, by which time Crowley had dropped or otherwise lost contact with most of his associates of the preceding decade and a half.

The book is available in hardcover in a limited edition of 666 copies for $45 US, and is available from Weiser Antiquarian and
