The Card that gave Crowley a chance for lawsuit

"On the 7th January, 1933, Crowley was walking down Praed Street in London. He stopped to look into the window of a bookshop and there saw a copy of his novel Moonchild. Attached to it was a card with these words written on it: "Aleister Crowley's first novel The Diary of a Drug Fiend was withdrawn from circulation after an attack in the sensational Press".  John Symonds The Great Beast (London: Rider and Company, 1951). p.285.

Found in Moonchild  (London: Mandrake Press, 1929).
