Johann Weyer's - The False Monarchy of Demons Deluxe Edition - 2021

Johann Weyer's - The False Monarchy of Demons Deluxe Edition - 2021

Johann Weyer's Pseudomonarchia Daemonum is considered one of the great-granddaddies of demonic catalogues. Many later works, including Scot's Discoverie of Witchcraft and the Goetia, are considered derivatives of Weyer's classic. This Deluxe Edition of The False Monarchy of Demons was produced as a real leather-bound volume.

Our deluxe translation of Weyer's four hundred-year-old encyclopedic work of demonology includes digitally enhanced and enlarged versions of de Plancy's 19th century woodcuts from Dictionnaire Infernal, demonic seal reproductions, and newly-commissioned black and white and full-color illustrations, each providing a unique vision of these infernal beings.

The Deluxe Edition improves on previous editions with new artwork and larger type. The complete text has been re-edited and the layout updated for easier reading. The index is redesigned to make searching easy, and new full-color artwork is included. Each volume is bound in black and red real leather with gold foil embossing. The English text is shown in black, side-by-side with the original Latin text in red. This volume is delivered in a foil-stamped slipcase.

The Pseudomonarchia Daemonum was originally published as an appendix to the hugely popular De Prestigiis Daemonum. Since then, it has been used as the definitive reference and source for several grimoires including The Lesser Key of Solomon and the Infernal Dictionary. Natalia Zasadzinska is a professional translator and book author. Her previous works include translation of the first English translation of the full text of De Plancy's Infernal Dictionary.
