Liber Collegii Interni Unknown. Some material exists in Crowley's notebooks, on the theory and practice of running a Magical Order, but nothing is known to survive with this title. See also Liber DCCCXI
Liber Mysteriorum Unknown. This book is mentioned in Liber 185, as part of the task of a Dominus Liminis. However, a book with this name does not appear to have survived. Possibly this was/is documentation regarding A∴A∴ rituals.
