Author: Jacques-Albin-Simon Collin de Plancy
Publisher: A Bruxelles, Chez Tours Les Libraries
A mid 19th century edition of Collin de Plancy’s famous Dictionnaire Infernal, the Universal Directory of beings, characters, books, facts and things that relate to apparitions, divinations, magic, commerce in hell, demons, sorcerers, occult sciences... and generally to all false beliefs, wonderful, surprising, mysterious or supernatural. The volume has been crudely rebacked.
One volume in octavo, 599 pages
This volume is in poor shape, with some rubbing and wear to the binding. The text blocking is coming loose from the binding, just holding on by a single piece at the front, and coming loose from the rear. The first 8 pages are slightly loose at the top. There is light scattered foxing and staining throughout. A candidate for rebinding.
