Seattle, WA: Trident Books, 1999. First Edition Thus - Deluxe, limited edition. Hardcover. Small octavo. xii+ 98pp (+ ivpp. adverts). Magnificent deluxe leather binding. Full black kidskin, with gilt titles to spine and front cover, and impressive blind-stamped inlaid design of a demonic face, within an inverted pentragram, within a circle, tooled in heavy relief on the front cover. In a buckram slipcase. Illustrations. Edition limited to 1000 numbered copies, of which only a small number were bound thus (most copies were cloth bound, and there was also a vellum edition). According to the publisher's notes, "Demonographia is a complete collection of the Louis Breton diabolic portraiture from 'Dictionnaire Infernal.' This collection has never before been published in its entirety and we feel seeing these images in the proper context will help the student 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 given in 'Dictionnaire Infernal' have been translated from the French and will be included as an appendix to the gallery of illustrations." A lovely copy with just the faintest hint of rubbing to the rear board, thus Fine in near Fine slipcase. Item #63262
