Octavo, pp. [1-8] 1-403 [404: blank] [note: first leaf is a blank], original red cloth, front panel stamped in gold and ruled in blind, spine panel stamped in gold. First edition. "A young Catholic, enraged by attacks made by a rationalist on the veneration of the Virgin Mary, tries to engage him in a duel; the rationalist is keen to cross swords but the world seems bent on preventing the fight. Their attempts to find a battlefield draw them closer together, and when they are separately tempted by the devil they see the error of their ways and join forces against him. A boisterous allegory, made seductively persuasive by the author's zestful rhetoric." - Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 3-77. Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror 5-58. Clute and Grant (eds), The Encyclopedia of Fantasy (1997), p. 182. Bleiler (1978), p. 42. Reginald 02928. A bright, fine copy. (#151017). N° de réf. du libraire 151017
