Yorke Collection

Books and papers belonging to the English occultist Aleister Crowley (1875-1947) were gifted to the library by one of Crowley's closest associates, Gerald Yorke (1903-1981).

The books in this collection are kept in our Rare Books Room and are available on request to all readers. Access to the manuscript material is restricted to academic researchers. Permission to use the manuscript collection must be requested in advance.
