Even if you have never heard about this book, you have probably seen the illustrations from it. This book has so much of a history and oddities associated with it that you could almost write a book about it. I will try to cram as much of it as possible into one blog post.

Many places on the web claim that L. Breton made 69 illustrations and M.

This is a good example of someone making a benign mistake which then gets copied by more people all over the web. In fact, when you look at the illustrations in the PDF in some detail you will see that indeed some not all demon illustrations are signed with initials L. Although the book mentions only L. Jacque, Didiot and Jarrault are people who simply worked in the studio of M.

Breton who was a sictionnaire artist of his time. If you just think logically about it after looking at these illustrations — there is no way that one man would have done them all in any reasonable time.


Mr Breton was a englksh artist, but not a superman. It was always a standard practice that an artist has assistants ingernal apprentices working for him.

I believe this is a story behind the different signatures on the illustrations in this book. Full Dictionnaire Infernal has illustrations and was not until now available in PDF for free download.


A picture is worth a thousand words. If you look at the detail comparison below, you will see that the scan is not 1836 top-of-the-line production. Still, this PFD is definitely a must for all aficionados of occult or illustrations.

Here is one nice example of what you have been missing: Yes, these engravings of demons made by L.

Breton are all under 2 inches in size. Even the nearly full-page sizes presented dictiobnaire Demonographia are a tribute to graphic editing skills of the guys at Trident Books. Taking a 2 inch picture and making it look good when it is magnified 2 — 3 times is an achievement but this is as far as it can be reasonably stretched.

I hope all of the above has opened your appetite for enjoying one of the finest pieces of occult related art available to-date. Please note that you can also get a text version of the book at the same URL above. With the help of the Google automatic translation you can actually see what it says for each entry in the book and thus partially compensate for the fact that this edition never had an English translation.

The first oddity of this book is a rather unique value system of its editions. Amateurs and aficionados alike know that first edition of any book is the most valued one. Subsequent editions decline in value.


Dictionnaire Infernal – Wikipedia

Sixth edition, printed by Dictionnajre Plon in is the dictionnalre coveted edition of Dictionnaire Infernal because it is the only edition that contains the famous illustrations.

This causes a situation that is very weird in the book world. Sixth edition in damaged condition, with some pages detached and badly in need of restauration sells for over Euros. When de Plancy wrote this book and published it in he was an atheist. He believed that church uses drawings of demons and similar monsters to scare people into their faith. Less than 15 years later he had turned.

He became dictionnakre Catholic and hired an artist Luis Breton who prepared yes, five hundred and fifty illustrations for the 6th edition of the book. The title page clearly states it: A bit about the scan quality A picture is worth a thousand words.
