"Marie Corelli (1855-1924) was the most popular novelist of the turn of the century, outselling Hall Caine, Mrs. Humphry Ward, H. G. Wells, and Arthur Conan Doyle by the thousands. For thirty years she was ridiculed by reviewers and the literary elite--Edmund Gosse dismissed her as "that little milliner"--but these opinions had no impact on her mass appeal. In 1895, with The Sorrows of Satan, she broke all previous publishing records, and by 1906 a Corelli novel sold 100, 000 copies a year." Fantastic Fiction Very good beige green stamped cloth.

Early U.S. piracy. First published in London in 1889 in three volumes by Bentley, this is a sequel of sorts to her first novel, A ROMANCE OF TWO WORLDS, taking up similar occult matters. A long complicated story set both in the present (London and the Middle East) and in a semi-mythical version of the Middle East some 5000 years ago where a culture has advanced technology. Besides the hero, Theos Alwyn, a depressed writer, the story features in its historical segment a femme fatale high priestess, a sensual poet, and a religious prophet.
