RAY, FREDERICK A. - The Devil Worshipper.
Boston, C.M. Clark 1908. Octavo, very good in publisher's illustrated black cloth blocked in gilt and red; colour frontispiece. ¶ First (only?) edition. Not in Hubin, though it should be, while in Bleiler though the only supernatural element is coincidence - a string of concidences that connect the characters, drive the plot and beggar belief. There is a satanic cult but for the most part they could be politely described as ethically disadvantaged. The villain, the central character, worships money. It is money that drives him to kidnapping, blackmail and theft. Much later, once he has plenty of it, a new series of deadly schemes are driven by lust. An oddly old fashioned novel, I would have guessed that it was written a generation earlier except that the climax is the Martinique earthquake of 1902.AUD 125.00 [Appr.: EURO 86 US$ 93.94 | £UK 73.25 | JP¥ 10461] Book number 8758
