The Mystery Of Anna Berger - George Godwin

Watts & Co., 1948, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with some short closed tears and a nick at the top corner of the lower panel. Leans slightly. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.

First in this edition. [First: 1935] No. 130 in the series. From the cover: “The theme of this book is a very unusual one. For the mystery of Anna Berger involves the true interpretation of the strange phenomenon manifested by her. A simple Austrian peasant girl, Anna develops the wounds of Christ’s Passion on brow, hands, and feet. Is it fraud, disease, or veritable supernatural manifestation? The Freudian-trained Dr. Oppenheimer takes one of these views; Father Schumann another. The author holds the scales between the two with admirable impartiality, leaving the reader to decide for himself — disease or holiness?”
