Judging the book by the cover: beautiful, deep red cloth cover in great shape for over 60 years old. Title and borders in gold on the spine; silver chimera on front cover. A chimera, in case you’re interested, is a fire-breathing female monster with a lion’s head, a goat’s body, and a serpent’s tail. It’s also a thing that is hoped or wished for but in fact is illusory or impossible to achieve.
Book Size: 6 7/8″ x 8 1/2″ x 1″
Inner beauty: traditional Fortune Teller/Keeper™ ‘ouija’ board; in the cavity is an image of a relief of an Egyptian goddess, either Hathor or Isis is my guessis; another god, perhaps some worshippers and some friendly advice on the planchette.
