Sales from the archives of LAShTAL

Looks like Paul Feazey, over at LAShTAL, is going to be putting items from his archives on offer soon, with lists of items posted first to the forums on his site and supplemented with downloadable catalogues.

“I find myself in the unfortunate position of having to sell the bulk of my archives: partly in order to raise funds for the ongoing maintenance and hosting of LAShTAL.COM, partly in preparation for an impending move to a smaller home and partly to raise some funds. I say ‘unfortunate’, but, in truth, this is an opportunity for members to obtain some very interesting items at very reasonable prices.

All items – books, papers, ephemera, prints and so on – will be listed on LAShTAL.COM and are offered to members and visitors in the first instance. Anything that doesn’t sell will ultimately be sold through eBay with reserves or starting prices not less than those listed here. All items are fully and accurately described and have been kept in archive conditions: smoke-free, pet-free and kept away from direct sunlight.” [via]

David Beth essay “Aleister Crowley and the Dawn of Aiwass”

You may be interested in checking out a newly available PDF of an updated David Beth (author of Voudon Gnosis, past leader of Ordo Templi Orientis Antiqua & La Couleuvre Noire, and member of La Société Voudon Gnostique) essay “Aleister Crowley and the Dawn of Aiwass” which has a number of notes which reference Aleister Crowley’s Liber AL vel Legis sub figurâ CCXX as delivered by (LXXVIII) XCIII unto DCLXVI with a commentary by The Beast To Mega Therion 666.

The post about this essay over at LAShTAL notes that David Beth is making this available “[a]s a gift to the Thelemic community for their inspiration and their aid in research and ideas in the past” and that “David considers this one of his finest non-Voudon related writings and invites conversation and feedback on it.”

“AC on N” is a new post by T Polyphilus

T Polyphilus recently posted “AC on N” which is about Aleister Crowley’s writing on Nietzsche in The Vindication of Nietzsche:

“Nietzsche’s true agenda is coming to fruition in a “New Religion” illustrated by passages from The Book of the Law. Although Crowley elsewhere described Anna Kingsford as the Baptizer John anticipating his Thelemic movement, in this essay Nietzsche serves as “the dawn-star” to herald a “son of man to be a Sun of men.” The latter is of course Aleister Crowley the Thelemic “Apollo … Antichrist … Saviour of the Earth!”

In addition to this post and the cited source material on Nietzsche at the Hermetic Library, there’s also elsewhere a thread about Nietzsche at LAShTAL which may be of interest.
