Flesh and Blood. A History of the Cannibal Complex.

New York: Stein and Day, 1975. First Printing of the First US Edition. A Fine tight copy in a Fine dust jacket. Reay Tannahill's classic survey of the anthropophagic urge is a beacon of scholarly wit in the dark shadows of our innermost fears. Tracing the practice back to its earliest days, Tannahill explores the symbolism, meanings and motivating factors of this ancient phenomenon, and assesses its influence in many of our enduring myths and habits, from vampires and werewolves to the celebration of the Eucharist.
