309 pages; Green cloth binding with black lettering in lascivious pictorial dustjacket. Scarce dustjacket very chipped and worn at edges. Gleb Botkin (1900-1969) grew up in the Russian Imperial Court where his father Eugene was a physician to the royal Romanov monarchy After his father was executed along with the Romanovs at the Ipatiev house in Ekaterinburg, Botkin fought on the side of the counter-revolutionary forces in Russia. As the outcome of the war became evident, Botkin fled to the United States, where he wrote novels (such as this fictionalised biography of Catherine I) and in 1938 founded The Church of Aphrodite, a Neopagan religious group. Monotheistic in structure, the Church believes in a singular female Goddess, who is named after the ancient Greek goddess of love, Aphrodite. Botkin eventually relocated from Long Island to Charlottesville, Virginia, where also resided Anna Anderson who long claimed to be Anastasia the daughter of Tzar Nicolas and sole surviving member of the Romanov family executed at Ekaterinburg. ; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings.
