¶ Fantastic occult tale. A journalist works his way into the confidence of a beautiful Egyptologist, who is both the reincarnation of Queen Nefruari and follower of Mme. Blavatsky. G.H. Lorimer, 1899- 1937, best known as editor-in-chief of the SATURDAY EVENING POST, hence perhaps the Leyendecker illustrations.
