Octavo, pp. [1-8] 9-448, flyleaves at front and rear, eleven inserted plates with illustrations by W. B. Bridge, early full brown leather lettered and ruled in gold. First edition. Published 1 February 1893 in paper wrappers as number 30 in the publisher's "Optimist" series. A pseudo-historical romance set in Peru around the time of Pizarro's conquest of the Incas. The story is enlivened by touches of the fantastic, including a race of diminutive humanoids with tails (the "imps") and permeated with an atmosphere of quasi-supernatural doom. The novel's final sentence is representative: "After Huayana, Peru's glory had been a troubled mist, a fugacious breath, the downfall of the Incas an irremediable fact." Bleiler (1978), p. 92. Not in Reginald (1979; 1992). Not in Wright, American Fiction 1876-1900. Signature on front free endpaper of "M. H. Hancock," presumably a family member. Rebound without the original wrappers, leather quite worn, pulpy text paper tanned, boards bowed, long horizontal tear through pp. 7-8 (without loss of text), a clean, sound copy. (#148382).
