FOR THE SOUL OF A WITCH: A ROMANCE OF BADENOCH. London: Rebman Limited, 1910.

First edition. Historical novel of witchcraft and were-wolfery in early sixteenth century Scotland. Language at times rambling, but overall quite lively and entertaining. "A long, muddled beginning, but very interesting second portion, with much folklore. The motif of the werewolf is exceptionally well handled." - Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 276. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 41. Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 55. Bleiler (1978), p. 31. Reginald 01909. Shallow loss at spine ends, splits in along outer joints professionally repaired, much of the white enamel lettering on spine panel perished, still a very good, generally attractive copy. An uncommon book with a delicate binding that is seldom found in nice condition. (#151690).
