1 De Lisser, Herbert G. The White Witch of Rosehall
London Ernest Benn Limited 1968 Third Edition Hardcover Very Good in Good+ dust jacket 


Black cloth with white lettering, 255 pp. Spine slanted, corners bumped, slight edge wear. Jacket is in new Brodart, some edge wear with a couple small tears to top edge, some chipping at all corners and along flap creases. Overall a nice copy.

"A very striking and curious story, founded on fact, of the West Indies of the early nineteenth century. Robert Rutherford is sent to the Islands to learn the planter's business from the bottom. He becomes an overseer at Rosehall, the property of a young widow, Mrs. Palmer, whose three husbands have all died in curious circumstances. She takes a violent fancy to Rutherford, who is also embarrassed by the attentions of his half-caste housekeeper, Millicent.
"His housekeeper is urging him with some success, to fall in with West Indian habits, when Mrs. Palmer arrives. Millicent defies her and threatens her with the power of Takoo, an Obeah man. Mrs. Palmer, herself skilled in Obeah magic, puts a spell on the girl, which Takoo's rites, shattered by the white woman's stronger magic, are powerless to remove. "; 6" - 7" Tall
