THE WOMAN AND THE PRIEST. London: Peter Davies, . Octavo, cloth. First edition. "... a complex, ambiguous novel in which the title characters battle for spiritual dominance on a small French island, although they may merely be instruments of 'a force elemental, fateful and malign, with an under-stirring secretive of the ancient earth.'" - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 137. Not in Reginald (1979; 1992). A bright, near fine copy in very good dust jacket with light shelf wear at edges, several short tears with internal tape mends (no show through on outer surface), and clipped price. (#79523).
