A cheap edition of the Faust story, compressed for maximum thrills and with hints at the dark arts, etc., and perhaps worth considering as an original piece of American fiction (or pseudo-fiction). The type bite is of such depth as to be tactile. American Imprints 12432; McCorison, Vermont Imprints, 915.
