The Authentic Red Dragon (Le Veritable Dragon Rouge) followed by the Black Hen (la Poule Noire) (Used)
by Silens, Manus
Publisher: Teitan Press, Inc.
Book ID: 9780933429215, 0933429215
The Dragon Rouge is one of the most notorious of the little books of black magic known as grimoires. This Teitan Press publication includes a complete facsimile of the earliest known edition - a French printing that is dated 1521 (although it was probably circa 1800) - along with a complete English translation by Joshua A. Wentworth. It is prefaced with a thoughtful and sometimes humorous Introduction by Silens Manus. The text itself is typical of grimoires of the time, and is clearly related to the Grand Grimoire. Its anonymous author claims that the work is derived from the wisdom of the legendary King Solomon, and then sets down instructions for the creation of a number of magical implements: blasting rod (wand), talisman and magic circle, that are to be used to summon the demon Lucifugé Rofocale, who is then bound over to serve the sorcerer. In the process a great many sub-demons are named, and their attributes listed. There follows a series of magic spells or recipes for various purposes; from making oneself invisible, to winning the affection of another, to the cure of various common ailments. The book ends with a chart of lucky and unlucky days and a short version of the treasure-finding text known as La Poule Noire (The Black Hen). The Dragon Rouge was very popular in nineteenth century France, and is still said to be one of the most highly revered texts in certain Voodoo circles in Haiti.
Small octavo ( 7 1/4" x 5 1/4"). 208pp. Bound in heavy black cloth with a gilt dragon design on the front cover, and gilt title to the spine. Red "coffin silk" endpapers. Printed on acid-free paper. Rubricated titles and frontispieces, black and white illustrations. Edition limited to 800 numbered copies.
