The Spellbook of Marie Laveau. The Petit Albert.

NP [ UK ]: Hadean Press, 2012. First Edition Thus. Hardcover. Octavo. xiv + 152pp. Gray cloth with silver lettering to spine, b&w illustrations. An English language edition of the famous grimoire "Petit Albert" which was first published in the eighteenth century, and underwent numerous editions. From the publisher: "The translator Talia Felix presents the full text of the Petit Albert in the English language, and offers a compelling argument that the Petit Albert was most likely one of the spellbooks in Laveau's arsenal, if indeed she was literate. At the very least, as Ms. Felix states in her introduction to the book, "it presents a period-correct view of the sort of magical knowledge that was likely to have influenced the real and genuine life and works of the famous Marie Laveau, and of New Orleans Voodoo as a whole." Slight glue bleed into margin of first two leaves (binding flaw), otherwise appears unread. Thus near VG+ in near Fine dust jacket. Item #68564
