Witchcraft novel, first published in 1945. New six-page introduction by Rosanne Rabinowitz. ''This is the story of Jenny Flower, London slum child, who one day, on an outing to the country, meets a Dark Stranger with horns on his head. It is the first day of August - Lammas - a witches' sabbath. Jenny was born on Hallowe'en, and possibly descended from witches herself . . .Reminiscent of Machen's, 'The White People', Lucifer and the Child is a tale of witchcraft - or is it? The author does not commit herself; merely stating that the story is open to natural explanation; alternatively, she invites 'the willing suspension of disbelief'. Once banned in Ireland by the Censorship of Publications Board, Lucifer and the Child is now available worldwide in this splendid new edition from Swan River Press featuring an introduction by Rosanne Rabinowitz and cover by Lorena Carrington''. 400 copies printed. With two publicity postcards laid in, plus a facsimile of the author's signature.
