This book contains 2 1/2 pages by Crowley, no pathworkings at all, and 57 pages of Really Basic Introductory Stuff – typical New Falcon pabulum. The main text is The Treasure-House of Images, being 90 pages of dreadful poetry by J.F.C. Fuller (who, you may notice, gets no credit on the title-page).
Like other books from these guys, this one seems to be written for either intermediate students or total beginners, depending on what page you read. If you’re advanced enough to create your own pathworkings but have not yet learned the Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram, then this book is for you!
“Diary of the Antichrist is the written record of the Spirit and Life of the ANTICHRIST, whose time is now at hand. Unlike other books about the ANTICHRIST, this book comes from a High Initiate of prominent Occult Orders. It is not the false work of a mere man; it was rather composed by an Alien Intelligence that telepathically directed the mind and hand of the scribe while he was experiencing altered states of consciousness. Also in this book are the Scriptures of the Antichrist, as well as the Qabalah of the Antichrist. This is the second edition of the book (2012), published in association with the Aleister Crowley Foundation, with cover artwork by the gothic artist Arijah Ankh Khalid-Zyn.” [via]
“This is the 20th Anniversary edition of the book which contains new material by Lon Milo DuQuette!
This book gives the student immediate access to the world’s most powerful yet misunderstood system of Magick. Crowley’s work on the Enochian system was originally published in The Equinox, his 10-voulme[sic] journal of Scientific Illuminism. It was the launching pad for all that followed. Originally published in 1912, it rent the veil of the Inner Order of the Golden Dawn and revealed its most precious jewel for all to see. Lon Milo DuQuette is a recognized expert on Enochian Magick who brings four decades of practical experience in the field to show you how to start using this powerful system right now.
It is the aim of this book to offer in a practical format, Liber LXXXIV vel Chanokh, Crowley’s original presentation of basic Enochiana, and make it immediately useful for the student who wishes to make use of it now. This coupled with Israel Regardie’s fine Enochian Dictionary and pronunciation guide provides the reader with the minimum material necessary to get started. For the advanced student it offers practical instructions and the opportunity to re-evaluate the original information that the greatest magician of the 20th Century felt was most necessary to master first.”
