Aquila Press

“Thus when James Cleugh, literary director of the Aquila Press, mentioned that the press was for sale, Crowley planned to buy it, turn it into a gallery, and charge artists to exhibit their works. Major Robert Thompson Thynne, whom he met at this time, promised to help with the scheme.”—Richard Kaczynski, Perdurabo: The Life of Aleister Crowley 1556438990; see James Cleugh, Robert Thompson Thynne

Aleister Crowley “kicked back with a copy of the finished proofs to volume three of this autobiography, enjoying the £500 he decided not to spend on the Aquila Press.”—Richard Kaczynski, Perdurabo: The Life of Aleister Crowley 1556438990

Aleister Crowley “had been trying to exhibit his paintings in London; a jobber named Hanchant tried to arrange an exhibit at Aquila, but that fell through with the purchase deal.”—Richard Kaczynski, Perdurabo: The Life of Aleister Crowley 1556438990; see Hanchant
