¶ Never before republished, this edition of Aleister Crowley's T????? (Thelema) is recreated from high-resolution scans of first editions which originally belonging to Wilfred Talbot Smith and C.F. Russell.

First published in 1909, this work was only made available to members of the A?A? as was required for the task particular to their grade. As such they were printed in three separate volumes: Libers LXI & LXV in the first volume, given to Probationers (both were later published in The Equinox 3.1); Liber Liberi Vel Lapis Lazvli VII in the second, given to Neophytes; and Liber L vel Legis, Liber Trigrammaton, and Liber DCCCXIII vel Ararita in the third, given to Zelators.

Be advised that this is a photographic copy of the first edition and thus maintains any errors. Especially, this version of L vel Legis should be avoided for any serious non-scholarly work, as it contains a large number of errors.
