COMMENTARY (Title Page)
The number of the book is 333, as implying dispersion, so as to correspond with the title, "Breaks" and "Lies".
However, the "one thought is itself untrue", and therefore its falsifactions are relatively true.
This book therefore consists of statements as nearly true as is possible to human language.
The verse from Tennyson is inserted partly because of the pun on the word "break"; partly because of the reference to the meaning of this title page, as explained above; partly because it is intensely amusing for Crowley to quote Tennyson.
There is no joke or subtle meaning in the publisher's imprint.
