Scot,
Per my copy, Nicholas the Terrified is correct. The rest of the text also is correct.

Subject: Verification of Imperial Orgy blurb


Folks, 
 
I was typing up the blurb from the front DJ panel of Saltus' Imperial Orgy. Can someone who has this book please verify the text and punctuation? (I had to use the small ModernLib image so I'm not sure of what I've written.) I'm particularly interested in the sobriquet "Nicholas the Terrified" : 
.................. 
The story of the Russian Czars is one long carnival of cruelty and lust, of a great, overgrown, thoroughly rotten Oriental despotism gradually but certainly tottering to its fall. A whole dynasty plays its part in this book — Ivan the Terrible, Peter the Great, the Empress Catherine,and finally, Nicholas the Terrified. The Imperial Orgy is in effect a moving picture history of Russia with the Czars as the principal actors. 
 
This is the first Edgar Saltus title in the Modern Library.
