Magick Without Tears

Magick Without Tears


Aleister Crowley

Complete and Unabridged, edited with a Foreword by Karl J. Germer

Magick Without Tears by Aleister Crowley


Note: This hypertext edition of Magick Without Tears is based on a plaintext edition entered in 1988 by Bill Heidrick from the 1954 first edition, with a foreword by the original editor Karl J. Germer.  The current (New Falcon) paper edition of this work was substantially abridged by editor F.I. Regardie.  Omissions by Germer from the original letters have not been restored.  Further proof reading may be needed.

Footnotes indicated by *, †, ‡, etc. by either Crowley or Germer.  Notes indicated by numbers are by one of the subsequent editors, transcribers, etc.

In the interests of readability, when converting the plaintext to HTML I made no attempt to retain the line breaks and pagination from the paper edition.  This had the unfortunate side-effect of rendering the index less than useful.  I ultimately intend to replace page references in the index with hyperlinks to the chapters in question.

Additional proofing and supplemental material required to produce complete and unabridged version.
Germer omits still a problem.
