Synopsis:

Limited to 1,000 copies, each invidually numbered, this book is a first edition, limited edition, and first English translation of the 1863 French text.

Demonographia is a complete collection of the diabolic portraiture designed by Louis Breton for J.A.S. Collin de Plancy's Dictionnaire Infernal, depicting many of the demons and dignitaries named in the classic literature of medeival magic and sorcery. This collection was never before published in its entirety, and the publlisher felt that seeing these images in the proper context would help students of demonology 'flesh out' their ideas of what the descriptions given in works like The Goetia intended.

Each illustration is reproduced line for line. They have not been reconstructed but are given exactly as in the original source work. The original descriptions have been traslated from the French and are included as an appendix to the gallery of illustrations. Also included are a bibliography and large foldout image of a demonic scene.
