Remarks:

The Gospel According to St. Bernard Shaw was originally intended to be published in The Equinox Vol. 3, No. 2.  This publication actually reached the print stage, but Crowley was unable to raise $1,500 for release of the printed pages, in addition to the money required to have the book bound.3

Also known as Liber 888.4 

The unbound pages were eventually destroyed circa 1928.  Crowley had retained a bound set of page proofs which was later lost or stolen circa 1943.6 

Typed on plastiplates by Ruth Soule, one of Roy Leffingwell's daughters using an electric typewriter.7  This edition was duplicated from these plastiplates.8

Defective page order or upside down pages are sometimes found.9, 12
Karl Germer copyrighted this book under his own name rather than Crowley's.10
