The cover pictured a character looking like Carnac the Magnificent from the old Johnny Carson TV show.
CARNAC, a village of north-western France, in the department of Morbihan and arrondissement of Lorient, 9 m.
The tradition of Carnac is that there was once a convent of the Templars or Red Cross Knights on the spot; but this, it seems, is not supported by history.
Carnac has an interesting museum of antiquities.

It fell into the hands of the English under General Carnac in 1763 after a prolonged resistance which caused considerable loss to the assailants.
