Crowley’s Diary is here published for the first time. Crowley called it a Magical Record because it contains accounts of his magical experiments, including the details of his secret sexual magick and of his consumption of a variety of dangerous drugs over a period of seven years. It was not written with an eye to publication. ‘I don’t particularly expect anybody to read it,’ he wrote. Hence the unguarded way he recorded his innermost thoughts and performances of secret rites. In addition to the diaries, the text of The Book of the Law is included at the end of the volume.
