NEDOURE PRIESTESS OF THE MAGI (REVISED EDITION) AN HISTORICAL ROMANCE OF WHITE AND BLACK MAGIC A STORY THAT REVEALS WISDOM OF THE ANCIENT PAST. Seattle: Published by W. F. Wohlstein & Co., [1916]. 16mo, pp. [1-6] 7-247 [248: blank], original pictorial yellowish green cloth, front panel stamped in black and gold, spine panel in black. First edition (?). This edition, here termed a "revised edition," appears to be the first edition (in book form anyway), as no earlier edition has been located. "Occult romance set in the mysterious East, a bit more colorless and formless than usual. One passage describes the Manamanda or Mind-Sender, a 'rare device' built from amber discs and copper wires (i.e., a crude electrical generator). The author was grand poobah in a small occult club in Chicago whose surviving members (or Betiero's son) reprinted this work in 1958, with a new introduction that casts but little light into the general murk." - Wilbur Whately. "Very fantastic" according to Stuart Teitler. Bleiler (1978), p. 22 (as "Revised Edition"). Reginald 01228. Smith, American Fiction, 1901-1925 B-572. Spine panel just a bit sunned, gold spine lettering just a bit dull, a nearly fine copy. This copy was formerly part of the Stuart Teitler collection of lost race fiction. (#151849).
