Description :

Octavo, pp. [i-iii] iv [v] vi-ix [x] [11] 12-363 [364] [365-368: ads], three inserted plates, including frontispiece (photographic portrait of the author), original gray-green cloth, front and spine panels stamped in black and silver. First edition. "This eccentric American lost-race fantasy, while presenting a confused and sometimes turgid appearance to the casual reader, has, hidden away in its pages like dormant magma, some of the most bizarre and controversial conceptions of its period. The story posits the former existence of a tribe of Toltecs in the American Southwest who practiced human sacrifice, and from whose altar dripped blood and gore that sank down into the ground and mingled with an underground stream to produce a liquid that acted as an elixir vitae (thus, technically, making this a kind of vampire story). In one scene, the high priest takes refuge from an earthquake in the cavern through which this stream flows, but, in trying to bring his young bride along with him, she suffers an accident that cuts her torso in two. The priest rescues the lower half, impregnates it and, by steeping it in the elixir stream for nine months, ensures the vitality of the fetus and the eventual birth of his heir." - Robert Eldridge. Reginald 15423. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978). Bookplate of Stuart A. Teitler (a noted collector of lost race fiction) affixed to front paste-down. Cloth lightly rubbed at spine ends and corner tips, two short closed tears in title leaf, a very good copy with clean and bright covers. A notably rare book. (#131025). N° de réf. du libraire

As I stood revolving these matters in my mind, Zadah remained silent, studying my face, as if to read there the decree of her fate. She was the first to speak. I cannot understand the sudden change that has come over the spirit of your highness dreams, she said at length in Spanish, which seemed to be the language of the court. I have been a true and faithful wife to you, Gonzales, and have not deserved this at your hands. You misunderstand me, signora, I replied, bracing my nerves for the scene that I knew was inevitable. I have done nothing to the king, as you call him, but he has done much to me.
