Item #28525 Mog Megone. May WYNNE, Mabel Wynne Knowles.

Mog Megone. London: Jarrolds Publishers, [1921].

First Edition. "Thrilling adventures in the early days of the English and French settlers among American Indians". A contemporary reviewer writes: "If Miss May Wynne had not furnished her story Mog Megone with an impossible Jesuit, in whom pious devotion runs always side by side with the most unscrupulous fanaticism, we should have less hesitation in recommending it to Catholic readers ; but Father Ralle is such a patent intriguer, to say nothing worse, that he must take his place among the Jesuits of Protestant fiction. The story deals with French and Indian conspiracies against the English settlers of New Hampshire and New England ; and as Father Ralle is a Frenchman, and devoted to his native cause—well, it is easy to see how he becomes in this tale the head and front of the offending side. The story, as a story, abounds in excitement, and stripped of its anti Catholic bias would hold plenty of commendable material." Good, some dampstaining to cloth (and frontis), soiling to page edges, in Good dustjacket, dampstain to verso of front panel, shallow edge chipping.

Price: $75.00
