Description Note, there is no white spot on the cover of this book, it is just my camera. The Encircled Serpent by M. Oldfield Howey. A 1955 hardcover copy of this excellent work. Some fading and rubbing to the book's spine, small stain to the book's block ( the book when closed). Internally clean and bright. No old owners names or marginalia to me found. A Solid and clean Good+ copy.

I feel this edition is superior to the original one issued in the 1920s. I have compared both books and find this edition to be have better image quality and to be overall more agreeable to the reader. As to content; a very curious book indeed. An in-depth study of serpent worship through ancient times. Topics range from the use of serpent imagery in talismans and magic to serpent worship, to the serpent’s place in mythology. A comprehensive examination of the topic that goes far beyond phallic worship etc..

Thoughtfully boxed, fully insured and shipped with a tracking #
