Early work by the American fantasy author featuring the Cerebroscope, a device which enables communication with the dead. The protagonist establishes the Church of Universal Truth, and the Cerebroscope effects "the reign of the brotherhood of man." Meyer's device would also be featured in his 1921 novel The Deer-Smellers of Haunted Mountain, when it is used to find a lost race of Germans living underground somewhere in the Appalachians. A well-preserved copy. REGINALD 10089; BLEILER, p.139.
