About this Item: Paris, author, ?, 1790. Three works in one volume, 8vo, pp. [iv], engraved frontispiece, xiv, 126, [2] advertisements, with numerous figures in the text and 4 engraved plates; half-title signed by the author to guarantee authenticity; 6; [ii], iv, 101, [1] blank; [iv] engraved frontispiece and title, xxxii, 160; early nineteenth century roan-backed mottled boards; extremities a little rubbed, but clean and crisp inside. An interesting Sammelband of three works documenting late eighteenth century fascination with the occult.I. A rare treatise on occultism, magic and divination carried out with a deck of Tarot cards, as described in the first book on esoteric Tarot (Etteilla, ou manière de se récréer avec un jeu de cartes) which had appeared in 1785 under the pseudonym Etteilla, an inversion of the name of the French occultist and populariser of Tarot, Jean Baptiste Alliette (1738-1791). In 1788 he founded the 'Société des Interprètes du Livre de Thot', a group of French-speaking correspondents through which he continued to disseminate his teachings. Towards the end of his life he and his circle were interpreting the hermetic wisdom of the Egyptian Book of Thoth. All these topics are digested in this illustrated work and Odoucet, the foremost pupil of Alliette, puts them into the context of other hermetic authors, such as Basilius Valentinus, Nicholas Flamel, cabbalists and Greek philosophers. At the end is bound in a review of a three-volume work by Odoucet, written by one Rochelim. II. First edition of Wartel's rare work on the question of emotions, feelings, free will and the soul of animals. Wartel, an Arras cleric, argues against Descartes' determinist view of animals and mechanistic explanations of life. Against the 'partisans des automates' Wartel holds his own observations of dogs and farm animals, proves that animals have memories, emotions and a soul. As creations of God, who is not a designer of machines, animals cannot be regarded as soulless creatures. Even what is described as animal instinct is 'engraved onto their soul by the great master of nature' (p. 25). He gives examples of intelligent behaviour in animals from Buffon, such as the architectural and social skills of beavers, or the wisdom of elephants. The second half of the book consists mainly of anecdotes of domestic animals proving the author's point.III. French edition with a spurious imprint of Dodsley's popular moralistic epistolary work, The Economy of Human Life (first, 1751). Handsomely printed, a copy with wide margins. I. OCLC: Weimar (1793), Yale (1790s), New York Historical Society (1785-1795); II. Conlon 73:1387; III. ESTC T82510. Seller Inventory # 2539
