The first three volumes are based upon Aleister Crowleys own first edition issued in 1909, the fourth volume contains other Holy Books not issued in the first edition, whilst volume five is a complete text of the Book of the Law suitable for both private and Temple use. Originally the volumes of ‘THELEMA’ were issued one at a time as the aspirant progressed through the successive grades of the Outer College of the Order. The publishers have kept much of the presentation and layout of the original 1909 edition of ‘THELEMA’, adding those further Class A documents (eight additional in volume 4, plus a ninth additional in volume 5) in uniform bindings. Volume 5 includes Liber XXXI (The Book of the Law) which has the printed text displayed side by side with its own transcription, the line arrangement of the type closely resembling the original manuscript. Complete contents are as follows: Volume I: Liber vel Causae, Liber Cordis Serpente. Volume II: Liber Liberivel Lapidis Lazuli. Volume III: LiberL vel Legis, Liber Trigrammaton, Liber vel Ararita.
