Moonchild was the second of Crowley's interwar novels - following Diary of a Drug Fiend in 1922. It is a wild fantastical roman-a-clef and incidentally one of the most striking pieces of book design of its day.

First edition, first impression; 8vo; publisher's green cloth, titles to spine gilt, with the Beresford Egan dust jacket, free endpapers browned, bookplate to front pastedown, a very good copy in the dust jacket, which at some point had been folded twice with the attendant creasing, and with a deal of internal repair, partially obscured ink note to front flap with a typed slip of paper pasted over.
