The Equinox

From para.wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Equinox was a large bi-annual periodical published by Aleister Crowley that served as the official organ of the A.'.A.'. and later the O.T.O. It was subtitled "The Review of Scientific Illuminism." It still remains one of the definitive works on occultism.

Publication History

The Equinox began in 1909 in London, and appears to have continued at least as far as Volume III, Number I, in 1919. After that, there appears to be a hiatus. Followers of Crowley have more recently published additional issues, some with longer writings of Crowley, others with new material. It appears that more than one "successor journal" to Crowley's original run has been claimed.

  • Volume I, Numbers 1–3 were published by Simpkin, Marshall, Hamilton, Kent & Co., Ltd.
  • Volume I, Numbers 4–5: the publisher is unknown to me (find this out).
  • Volume I, Numbers 6–10 were published by Wieland & Co.
  • Volume III, Number 1 was published by Universal Publishing Company in Detroit, Michigan, USA.
