The first three Coph Nia editions of the Holy Books of Thelema, with commentaries

I just added some images of the first three Coph Nia editions of the Holy Books of Thelema, with commentaries, to the visual pool. So far, they are Liber B vel Magi and Liber Liberi vel Lapidis Lazuli chapter I & chapter II. I thought people might be interested in taking a look. I did mention Coph Nia’s edition of Liber VII, pt 1 when I got it a while back, but I thought I’d post again now that the next in the series has arrived.

Coph Nia, a local body of Ordo Templi Orientis in the valley of Eugene, OR, has started issuing a small number of pamphlets which contain Class A technical libri by Aleister Crowley along with comment and notes. The text of the technical libri are taken, of course, from the excellent versions online at the Hermetic Library, but are supplemented with a variety of additional commentary, which come variously from sources such as Equinox IV, I as well as from otherwise unpublished papers and notes. These works are being curated by the team at Coph Nia, which includes Hermetic Library fellow David R Jones.

New pdf for Liber Liberi vel Lapidis Lazuli Adumbratio Kabbalæ Ægyptiorum sub figura VII

Liber Liberi vel Lapidis Lazuli Adumbratio Kabbalæ Ægyptiorum sub figurâ VII, Book 7, in the Libri of Aleister Crowley has seen another update. A while ago, I went through all The Holy Books of Thelema, the technical writings of Aleister Crowley, publications in class A, and tried to catch and correct any errors there were in the HTML versions. I’ve put online an experimental new PDF to replace the old legacy version of this liber. Not only will this correct any errors that may have been in the old PDF, but this will also make it easier to make corrections in the future; which is great because I was up pretty late last night doing multiple re-uploads of this PDF because I kept finding things to fix at the last minute.

I also changed the HTML page for the liber itself to have links in the bottom navigation area to a renamed text and the new PDF formats, and updated the index for the libri by number on the main Aleister Crowley page.

So, check out the new experimental Liber Liberi vel Lapidis Lazuli Adumbratio Kabbalæ Ægyptiorum sub figurâ VII on the site.
