La Sodome des Antilles, ou le Sauvage du Mont-Pelé
Paris: Librairie Generale Catholique (1922). 287pp.
A fictionalized version of the events leading up the the eruption of Mt. Pele in 1902, which resulted in the death of 30,000 people around St. Pierre, the capitol. St. Pierre has been described as the Sodom of the Caribbean, a town rife with prostitution, decadence, blasphemy, homosexuality and unbelief and many believed this was the reason for the eruption. The author portrays assorted sacrileges and "decadent behavior" that occurred immediately before the eruption.
Very good in original wrappers, light wear to covers and spine, pages uncut. Quite rare.
