Ancient Wisdom: Black Light
August 1978 was the publication date for #4 in the Ancient Wisdom series: Black Light by Talbot Mundy. It is an exotic story about a lost woman and the love she finds as she develops spiritual awareness.
Francis Marshall illustrates this cover with a couple standing in a typical Cartland pose with the heroine holding a flower. What's different is the men and statues in the background, showing us that this is an esoteric story. There is one more book in this series that was published in the UK, and then we'll move on to Francis Marshall's covers illustrating biographies that Cartland wrote about famous Europeans!
