Title: An Oriental Constellation. A Romantic Pate of Hidden History In the Barbaric Age, Delineating the Fall and Rise of a Peculiar Nation

Author: G. Eugene Harfield

Description: First Edition. Privately printed for subscribers. Blue cloth boards with gilt lettering and blind stamped border. All edges red dyed. Chip at head of spine; minor wear to tail of spine and corners. Some archival repairs; a few pages have small chips or short closed tears. Illustrations. At end of book are two fold-out lists: one appears to be a brief commercial directory of Jews in New Jersey and New York (with address and type of trade given), and the other is a list of subscribers (which, notably, includes President Grover Cleveland).

A work purported to be based on three manuscripts: a paraphrastic enlargement of an archaic manuscript now in the St. Petersburg library; a scholium on a Sigla manuscript in the Egyptian Archives; and a Samaritan Chronicle written shortly after the Holy Conquest three thousand one hundred and sixty years ago.
