307; 24pp. Octavo [20 cm] Red cloth with gilt stamped title and author on the front board and backstrip. Twenty-four pages of publisher's adverts at the rear. The extremities are bumped and rubbed, and the spine and the edges of the front cover are sunned. There are multiple splits in the cloth at the ends of the backstrip. The longest split measures 1/4" long. The cloth at the foot of the backstrip is discolored from label removal, and the front pastedown is also worn from bookplate removal. The front endsheet has an effaced numerical notation, along with a bookseller's small ticket.
The author's anti-Mormon sentiment takes center stage in this sensational account, and glancing at the sources cited (Beadle and Lamb to name two) in the front of the volume it's easy to see the direction the volume is going. "Winifred Graham has taken a prominent part in the anti-Mormon campaign, carried successfully on for the last two years in England" - from advert at rear. The author also penned the screenplay to bizarre silent film "Trapped by the Mormons." Flake/Draper 2533
