Small 12mo (18 cm), pp. 178, . With three double page plates depicting Masonic documents. Three illustrations accompany the text (one is a full page illustrating Masonic badges). Bound in original publisher’s wraps – showing wear, rubbing, minor chipping, discoloration etc.; three small edge tears are neatly sealed. The paper spine contains some careful strengthening and restoration work. A shelf-number "18" is written in three locations - at the head of the spine, on the upper inner corner of the front wrap and on the verso of the wrap. An old bookseller’s ticket is also pasted on the inside front wrap and is accompanied by two small ink stamps. The fly-leaves are trimmed 17 mm. short of the fore-edge. A penciled inscription is written on the front fly-leaf. Interior pages are lightly age-toned but generally clean. The fore-edges of the first few leaves contain a slight overhang from the text block and therefore show some edge wear. …An interesting and concise dictionary of occult terminology. The entries are organized under chapters such as occultisme, phrenologie, physiognomie et pathognomonique, oniromancie, cartomancie, graphologie, onomamancie, magiciens – chiromanciens- devins – alchimistes – etc., societés secrètes. According to Caillet: "Ouvrage du plus grand intérèt, destinè à rendre de grands services à tous les chercheurs. Le Dicictionnaire des Sociétés Secrèts occupe à lui seul 60 p. de texte et contient d'une façon très concise, toute la matière de la science maçonnique ."
