Remarks:

In the spring of 1944 Crowley prepared this prospectus and began selling subscriptions to The Book of Thoth in May.  He found takers in McMurtry, Sutherland, Tredegar, and Bayley as well as E. N. Fitzgerald, Dion Fortune, and others.1

Due to wartime rationing these prospectuses caused some concern after they were mailed.  Crowley wrote: It seems that I may have technically infringed one of those fool regulations about sending out prospectuses free of charge, but luckily The Book of Thoth is No. 5 of Vol III of The Equinox.  Of course it is very trivial and technical:  but considering how I have been framed up in the past, and how many wolves are out after my blood, I must confess to more than a little apprehension.1

An American version of a prospectus exists for The Book of Thoth.”
