Musée du Caire

Why did Aleister Crowley call the newly built Cairo Museum where his wife discovered the "Stélé of Revealing" for the "Boulak Museum"?

Read this detailed historical account of the various Egyptological museums in Egyptian history and discover the answer! Furthermore, I have found proof that it, in fact, was the French assistant curator of the Cairo Museum, Georges Daressy, who wrote the documents containing the translations of the “Stèle 666”, which Crowley commissioned at the museum during the Cairo Working in 1904 E.V. However, there are strong indications suggesting that the work of the translations was initiated by the museum's French Director Gaston Maspero! – Read online or download this PDF file (45 pp.) containing an extract from FOR THE THELEMITES.
