His collection grew into the thousands over the years and included 17th Century manuscripts, signed Crowley material, and many Boehme firsts. A few years ago I learned that he attended the same school and in the same class as my mother! He wrote one book on the tarot, unpublished so far (I have the mss). Elbert Benjamine was born in Iowa in 1882. He was a key member in the later years of the HB of L. There is a good biography of him at www.light.org. What we have here are 12 of his original lessons, each with title page. There are many individual reprints.

Emergent from the spiritual crossroads of traditional Vodou and English w...
