Book Description Whittlesey House / McGraw-Hill Book Company, Inc. ., New York & Toronto, 1948. Octavo, pp. [1-2] [1-4] 5-6 [7-8] 9-60 [61: colophon] [62: blank], illustrations by Peter Lauck, cloth-backed boards. First edition in English. The author's first book, a fairy tale about a wolf who is converted by St. Francis into peaceable ways, and whose grateful love, in turn, transforms the village ugly duckling into a beautiful young woman. In the end, the wolf is quasi-spiritualized. A bit saccharine perhaps but interesting as a kind of reverse werewolf story. The author was a French commando in World War II, was wounded, captured, released, worked with the resistance, and was captured again. After the war he joined the Dominican Order and moved to the U.S. Reginald 02005. A nearly fine copy in good dust jacket with shelf wear and chips at edges, several internal tape mends, and some soiling and staining. (#117589). Seller Inventory # 117589
