1982 The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail
What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Illustrated, With Dustwrapper
The first edition, third impression of this work in the publisher's original cloth binding, with the original unclipped dust wrapper. Ink inscription to the front free end paper, dated 1982. Illustrated with 36 plates. Collated complete. This book was first published in 1982 as an unofficial follow-up to a BBC documentary, and was an international bestseller. In this work, the authors put forward a hypothesis that the historical Jesus married Mary Magdalene, had one or more children, and that those children or their descendants emigrated to what is now southern France. Once there, they intermarried with the noble families that would eventually become the Merovingian dynasty, whose claim to the throne of France is supported by secret society the Priory of Sion. They conclude that the legendary Holy Grail is simultaneously the womb of Mary Magdalene and the sacred royal bloodline she gave birth to.
In publisher's original cloth binding, with original unclipped dust wrapper. Externally, cloth is in excellent condition, with a very faint mark to the front board. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean, except for the odd spot to the fore edge and a little offsetting to pages 18 and 19. A couple of the plates are stuck together to the top edge. A couple of very light marks to the rear of the dust wrapper, and the odd spot and a faint stain to the reverse of the wrap. Otherwise dust wrapper is very smart.
