Richard Kaczynski made this announcement on FB:
Kamuret Press will be releasing an extensively annotated edition of Aleister Crowley’s first talismanic book, his remarkable “The Sword of Song,” edited and introduced by yours truly.
This collection of poetry, essays, satire, kabbalah, Buddhism and magick preserves the layout of the rare 1904 first edition, while incorporating material added by Crowley in his 1906 “Collected Works.” In addition, this new edition notes Crowley’s revisions, insertions, and deleted lines in the various manuscript and typescript versions of the work in development.
“The Sword of Song” will be the second title in Kamuret’s catalog, following its brand-new release of Aleister Crowley’s “Early Poetic Works,” edited, annotated and introduced by Chris Giudice, with a foreword by Henrik Bogdan.
Target date: winter 2020. Details: https://kamuret.com/forthcoming-jan2020/
“Yet by-and-by I hope to weave
A song of Anti-Christmas Eve
And First- and Second-Beast-er Day.
There’s one who loves me dearly (vrai!)
Who yet believes me sprung from Tophet,
Either the Beast or the False Prophet;
And by all sorts of monkey tricks
Adds up my name to Six Six Six.
Retire, good Gallup! In such strife her
Superior skill makes you a cipher!
Ho! I adopt the number. Look
At the quaint wrapper of this book!
I will deserve it if I can:
It is the number of a Man.”
