This book is the biography of Ida Craddock, an early twentieth-century American occultist and sexologist Craddock, along with a collection of her writings. 

Craddock was hailed as a great occult teacher by Aleister Crowley. She became infamous for her correspondence courses on sex for newlyweds, in which she included sex mysticism, complete with teachings she maintained came in part, from her 'angelic husband'. This angel husband was one with whom, she said, she had regular intercourse. Branded as mentally ill, Craddock was arrested in 1902 under New York's anti-obscenity laws. She subsequently took her own life. 

This is an important book which brings yet another female occultist back from the shadows of history into the light to take her rightful place.
