First Edition. Octavo, original pictorial wrappers. Issued as The Nickel Library, Series one, Number Two. 32 pp. Disbound from a larger volume at some point, with sewing marks along the spine; but still a very good clean copy. The rear cover advertises up to No. 26 in the series.


A very rare early American dime novel. Sensational in all ways, but with no fantastic content, despite the subtitle mentioning that the protagonist is a witch. There do not appear to be any institutional holdings of this title, except in microfilm. The Nickel library was the first series of 'dime novels' to be priced at less then a dime.
