St. Louis, Christian Publishing Company, 1901. First edition, first impression. Hardback. A very good copy. Inscribed by the author to the front endpaper. A rare lost race novel involving Central America wherein the Toltecs and the Chichimecs are at each others' throats. Of fantasy interest is the mountain-top lake with a monster in its depths living of the souls of the dead. A rare book which Robert Eldridge describes as 'dull'. A little dustiness to the boards, but largely in excellent shape. [10561, Hyraxia Books].
