EQUINOX. The Official Organ of the A. A. The Review of Scientific Illuminism. An LXXV. Volume V, Number 2.

Deluxe limited edition. Signed by the author. Publisher's original green and gilt padded boards, with titles in gilt to the upper board and spine, in dustwrapper. All edges gilt. A very good copy, the binding square and firm, the lower board with a little paper residue from the underside of the dustwrapper. Complete with the rubbed and marked dustwrapper that has a faint stain to the right edge of the upper panel and some damp marking to the underside.

This deluxe issue is limited to 200 copies of which this example is numbered 55 and signed twice by Marcelo Motta (once as '666' and again with his normal signature), and also [most unusually] in red ink by Jeremy Charles Ellis. Motta was reclusive and notoriously averse to signing his works, this is the only volume of his Equinox series that was issued as a signed limited edition. In May 1978 Jeremy Charles Ellis was nominated by Motta a representative of the Society Ordo Templi Orientis in London with instruction to stop the Crowleyan publications of Kenneth Grant and John Symonds. Taking Motta's orders literally he was arrested and jailed in 1982 for the attempted arson of the offices of Grant's publisher Routledge and Kegan Paul. He committed suicide in 1983.
