Remarks:

It's generally considered that Crowley wrote the majority of this book while staying at Evangeline Adams' cottage in Hebron, New Hampshire.2   Crowley's manuscript was used by Adams for this book and Astrology: Your Place Among the Stars.  She deleted much of Crowley's introduction, added some new chapters, tables and lists and published these two books under her own name.3

______________________________


On 28 December 1936 Crowley wrote the following note to Evangeline Adam's publisher, Dodd, Mead & Co.:
     Gentlemen,
      My attention has just been drawn to a book published by you in 1930 e.v., Astrology:  Your Place Among the Stars by Evangeline Adams.  Practically the whole of this book, except the hack work calculations, is taken from a manuscript of mine.  It is quite probable that the rest of the manuscript has been printed in the other two books by my late friend and colleague.  My arrangement with her was that we should divide the profits in equal moieties.  I should be greatly obliged for information as to the other two books, and an accounting.
      Yours sincerely,
      Aleister Crowley1

Comments by
Aleister
Crowley:

     I dined at Cosegrave's house one night. He had asked Evangeline Adams to meet me as being a famous astrologer. The meeting led to a lengthy association. She wanted me to write a book on astrology for her. The plan failed through her persistent efforts to cheat me out of the profits, and her obstinate ignorance of the elementary facts of nature combined with an unconquerable antagonism to the principles of applying common sense to the science.
