Condition: Good. An acceptable reading copy only. Wraps and spine lightly faded. Pages gently age-tanned.

First in this edition. There has always been the tradition of a hidden side to sex, the strange belief that the sexual act may be transformed into a supernatural rite. Francis King here presents a detailed account of his researches into the relationship between sexuality, perversion and magic — touching on Tantric Rituals of India, the sexual alchemists of China and Aleister Crowley’s “Order of Oriental Templars”. This remarkable book, the first of its kind, also provides a fascinating look at the role played by magical fantasy in hard-core pornography. 2pp. Publishers advertisements to the rear.
