Full title: The Portent; A Story of the Inner Vision of the Highlanders Commonly Called the Second Sight.

A ghostly story from George MacDonald. The Portent tells of young Duncan Campbell's seemingly hopeless love for the mysterious Lady Alice Hamilton and of the portent itself—the fateful sound of a ghostly horse—which bring to a fast-paced climax this story of revenge, jealousy, and an ordinary world transformed by the supernatural.


The book itself is in good readable condition, but the top corner of the last ten pages is creased. The dustwrapper is in fair condition, with some blotchy marks to the front, small tears to the edges and some loss at the head of the spine.
