 The ten bulky "numbers" of The Equinox volume II were neither written nor were they ever intended to be written. Crowley refers to them as "a volume of Silence". Silence is the formula of Harpocrates, and Silence alternates with that of Speech, the Outpouring, the formula of Ra-Hoor-Khuit, the Twin aspects of Horus.
 "The Magician, Oliver Haddo, was Aleister Crowley; his house 'Skene' was Boleskine. The hero's witty remarks were, many of them, my own." The Confessions
 Book Four was designed in four parts, two of which were published separately in 1911 and 1912. Part three, entitled Magick in Theory and Practice, appeared in 1929. Part four was intended to be the text of The Book of the Law with Crowley's final comment on it. He wrote several comments, none of which satisfied him. In 1936 he published The Book of the Law with another and short comment under the title of The Equinox of the Gods; it was not, however, described as Book Four (part four). It forms instead part of The Equinox series, being number three of volume III.
 "Liber XXV" is chapter XXV in The Book of Lies, 1913. Twenty-five is the square of five, the number of the Pentagram.
 In the Theosophical system. See The Secret Doctrine, 1888, by H. P. Blavatsky.
 "Liber XXXVI" is chapter XXXVI in The Book of Lies. Thirty-six is the square of six, the number of the Hexagram.
 "Liber XLIV" is chapter XLIV in The Book of Lies. Forty-four is the number of blood, which forms the basis of this rite — the Mass of the Phoenix.
 Liber LXXVIII was expanded into The Book of Thoth, 1944
 The "full commentary" on The Book of the Law is still unpublished. In 1936 Crowley published a condensed version in The Equinox of the Gods.
 The Magician exalts and expands his consciousness by several means. That referred to here, the ecstatic vibration of barbarous names — usually corruptions of Gnostic or Egyptian god-names — is extended to the use of composite words, such as BATRACHOPHRENOBOOCOSMOMACHIA. Crowley gives this as the title of Liber 536 which is an account of the expansion of individual consciousness to infinity. This practice of vibrating the barbarous names forms an important part of magic.
 Crowley had forgotten that this essay had appeared as an article in The International, the magazine which he edited in New York in 1917.
 This became The Equinox of the Gods, 1936.
 The Neptune Press, 1949.
 Greatly Honoured.
 Liber 888 was incorporated in a long essay entitled "The Gospel according to Saint Bernard Shaw," unpublished.
