Liber Mysteriorum is the Ritual Manual for A.'.A.'. operations.  Much
of it is extant in the NW MS.  Some of it, including a proposed
contents exists with the ThROA MS, including the original designs for
Regalia, the original lunar language  adoration and signs for Resh,
Equinox celebratons, initiations for the conferal of the degrees etc.
Part of the problem with this is that parts of the pages of the MS got
seperated in the Warburg collection and collators like King and Naylor
confused what was going on, assuming the extant order of the pages was
correct.  Naylor's O.T.O. book has several parts, some that even go
together, but since he basically had no idea regarding the material he
was editing the obvious connections were not put together by him.

Well depends on how you look at it.  It is the test guide for the
various Grades of A.'.A.'.  It's short but fairly fleshed out.  The
criterion are what they are, so it doesn't need to be too long.  

It's unlikely that large portions of this material will see the light
of day any time soon, there really isn't any compelling need for the
public to see what is essentially private material except to satisfy
curiousity.  Some like the robe designs and at least one form of
Ritual 671 have been published recently as part of the Equinoxes.  It
is interesting but Crowley changed large portions of this work in the
course of A.'.A.'.'s evolution even in his lifetime.  

Love is the 
law, love under will.
