250 pp, 8vo (8 7/16" H). "(In seventeenth-century Germany), Krabat, a fourteen-year-old Wendish beggar boy, is summoned in a dream to a mysterious mill. When he awakens, an irresistible force makes him seek out a mill near the village of Schwarzkollm where he becomes apprenticed to the master. He soon discovers that the mill is actually a school for black magic and that he and the mill's journeymen are virtual prisoners. During the week they do the normal work of the mill, but on Friday nights the master initiates them into the strange rituals of the Art of Arts. The very first Friday, the master turns Krabat into a raven, a trick the boy quickly learns to do himself. Krabat completes his apprenticeship, becomes a journeyman and the master's star pupil in necromancy. But the power his new skills endow him with does not compensate for his loss of freedom. And the more he learns of the mill's dark secrets, the more determined he becomes to escape from the master's bondage. Called a masterpiece by reviewers in Germany, 'The Satanic Mill' was awarded the 1972 German Children's Book Prize." Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, taped 3" tear at bottom of page 149/150, tiny light stain on top of text block. Dust jacket has very light wear/wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, corner crease on rear flap-folds, very light rubbing/soiling.
