Book Details + Condition: Very scarce first edition from 1933 of THE WEREWOLF by Montague Summers. Published by Kegan Paul, Trench, Trubner & Co (London). Includes very scarce dust jacket. Publisher's original green cloth boards with gilt title on spine. In very good condition: tight binding; light rubbing to corners, edges and spine ends; text is clean and unmarked save periodic foxing throughout pages. The renowned occult scholar and author examines lycanthropy; werewolves in Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal, England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, France, “the North,” Russia, and Germany; and werewolves in literature. Includes a bibliography, index, a note on “Witch Ointments” by Dr. H.J. Norman — and some wonderfully grim full-page illustrated plates. A rare and thorough work, The Werewolf is the first definitive book on lycanthropy, employing an extensive range of historical documentation and folklore from throughout Europe to powerfully portray the horror associated with a belief in werewolves.
