Baffling Godwin 1971-2

This Baffling World was originally published in 1968, yet another entry, though more popular than most, in the literature of the unexplained. Bantam reprinted the book in three volumes in 1971. The cover artist is unknown.

Godwin was an Australian journalist who wrote Occult America (1972), a competent early survey that includes a lengthy interview with Anton Lavey, as well as a description of the Church of Satan and its rituals.
