Description:  Rare card inscribed and signed by the renowned author of thrillers (1897-1977).  Wheatley's best-known work , The Devil Rides Out (1934; made into the classic 1968 Hammer horror film), was inspired by his acquaintanceship with notorious occultist Aleister Crowley.  His popular Gregory Sallust espionage series was influenced by his deep friendship with the fabled M.I.5 spymaster Maxwell Knight.  Wheatley, Crowley, and Knight socialized together and were of like mind:  Wheatley and Crowley also worked for M.I.5, and both Wheatley and Knight were immersed in the occult under Crowley's aegis.  (Vintage item circa early forties)
