FLESH. Philip Jose Farmer.

FLESH. Garden City: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1968. Octavo, cloth. First hardcover edition. First printing of the revised text. Signed inscription by Farmer to Mystery book collector and Sherlockian Luther Norris on the front free endpaper. "A space expedition comes home to discover that Earth has reverted to worship of the Great Mother. Captain Peter Stagg is given a pair of antlers and is required by the priestesses to indulge in some startling rites. A bawdy SF vulgarization of themes from Robert Graves's THE WHITE GODDESS (1948). Quite entertaining -- and daring for its day." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), pp. 138-9. A fine copy in nearly fine dust jacket with faint creases at spine ends and just a bit of internal tanning. A nice copy overall. (#138857).
