[a very nice copy, the book blemished only by a couple of small brown spots on the fore-edge, otherwise clean and tight, with an old bookseller's price label on rear pastedown; the jacket is fresh and unmarked, with only the slightest bumping at the base of the spine]. A sort of modern variation on the old Breton legend (with the action relocated from Brittany to "Central Europe") about the city of Ys ("Le roi d'Ys"), whose "young and beautiful and witchlike" Queen, in league with the devil (in human form), ultimately provokes the populace into rebellion, and consigns the city itself to a watery doom.
