A unique collection of Qabalistic texts that includes Gematria, 777, and Sepher Sephiroth.
Gematria provides essential explanations of theoretical and practical Qabalistic number analysis and philosophy. “An Essay in Number,” also included, provides invaluable insights into key numbers as well as techniques and safeguards for practical magical work. Gematria was first published in The Equinox, vol. 1. no. 5.
777 itself contains, in concise tabulated form, an overview of symbolism of the major world religions, as well as the system of correspondence of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. In short, it is a complete magical and philosophical dictionary—a key to all religion and practical occultism—an amazing work whose value has been recognized through many editions since its first appearance in 1909 and subsequent enlargement in 1955.
The third text in this collection is Sepher Sephiroth, a unique dictionary listing hundreds of Hebrew words arranged by numerical value. It was compiled jointly by Aleister Crowley and Allan Bennett and first appeared in The Equinox, vol. 1, no. 8.
About the Author
Aleister Crowley (1875-1947) was the most widely read author in 20th-century occultism. He single-handedly redefined magic as a field of inquiry and endeavor through his books and the order that he led--the A.A. and the O.T.O. He is the author several books including The Book of the Law, 777 and Other Qabalistic Writings, and The Book of Thoth.
"A fine reading experience. Aleister Crowley created some of his finest writings in this collection."
