Description:
London: George Redway, 1900. Early Edition, First Printed in 1897. Small Octavo, 7 3/4 x 5 1/2 inches. Original black cloth over boards, ink and gilt lettering and decorations at front cover and spine, gilt top edge. A scarce occult, literary hoax by Edward Irenaeus Prime-Stevenson, who is most-often remembered for his 1906 pioneering gay-themed novel Imre, published under the pseudonym Xavier Mayne. On top of the interesting provenance of this volume and its rarity, the cover art of this volume, portraying a mysterious fortune-telling figure beside a black cat, is truly excellent. A reprint of an extremely unique Gypsy system from the 18th Century. This is one of the rarest early works on Playing Card Readings and their interpretations. Very Good, cloth very slightly faded, spine ends and corners very slightly bumped, pages agetoned with some spotting, damp stain to bottom inner pages throughout but not affecting text.
