Publisher's full cloth, gilt lettering on spine. "Ceremony of Innocence is the story of the novice Sybil, who comes from England to join the Anglican convent at Geldersburg. The other nuns, old Sister Lillian in particular, soon notice that Sybil's strange spiritual powers include the gift of clairvoyance. While on an errand of mercy with Sister Lillian, Sybil meets Tearlach Heriot, brilliant, riotous young Irish writer and scoffer of religion; their destinies, Sybil hints, are bound together. After healing an incurable spastic, Sybil's fame as a miracle-worker sweeps the countryside, the convent is besieged by cure-seekers, and consternation reigns within the religious community." A brilliant satire on the hypocrisy and insincerity of modern civilization which inhibit spiritual growth.. This is an unmarked copy with very light shelf-wear only. The unclipped dust jacket (now in Mylar) is lightly chipped at the head and heel of the spine and the corners. NEAR FINE/VERY GOOD.. 8vo 8" - 9" tall. 248 pp
