First edition. A well-received historical novel by a Scottish folklorist, set in the Forfar region of Scotland in the early 1700s, that presents "a record of murder, witchcraft, and lawless smuggling." It was the author's intent to "paint a vivid and true picture in all its weird marvellousness, of the period when Scotland was overshadowed by the belief in witchcraft and kindred superstitions." - author's "preface." A lengthy appendix of historical notes, pp. -303 follows the novel. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978), Day (1963) or Reginald (1979; 1992). Not in Sadleir or Wolff.
