(025452) Heard, Gerald. The Black Fox: A Novel of the Seventies. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1951. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 8vo. 275 pages. Very Good in Very Good DJ. Black cloth spine and green boards. Boards show some fading on the edges. Front free endpaper lightly creased. DJ is price clipped and lightly edgeworn. DJ spine tips slightly chipped . A rather scarce novel of the supernatural. The setting is an English cathedral close of the 1870s. Here Throcton is a Canon--an ambitious scholar and orientalist who despises one of his colleagues and fears another. When Canon Simpkins wins preferment over him his resentment is so great that he looks up an ancient Arabic formula for destroying one's enemy. What follows his brief ritualistic act gives this story its name and dark pattern. How a superior force, available to the pure in heart, counteracts the murderous black magic released in the cathedral community marks the denouemont of the story.
