Le Diable Bossu.
Nancy, Chez Dominique Gaydon, 1708. - XVI, [8], 274 p., 12°, Simple Paperback of the time Anonymously published by Jean-Chrysostome Bruslé de Montpleinchamp (1641-1724), who also used the pseudonyms Nicolas de Fabert, De Gérimont, Louis de La Rose, De Palaidor. The little fictional book lists and describes the histories of a number of devils, e.g. "Le Diable Dogue", "Le Diable Edenté", "Le Diable Goliat", "Le Diable endormi", "Le Diable Femme", "Le Diable Grue"etc. etc. - The "Biographie nationale de Belgique" says about the book: "Roman absurde plein de visions, d’apparitions, de démons armés de grands sabres, coupant les gens en morceaux." (Tome 3.djvu/72). Another text about the author ("Un historien namurois controversé") describes the book as "une histoire abracadabrante et mal écrite de fantômes et de diables découpant les gens en morceaux de leur grand couteau." (www:marc-ronvaux:be/Files/brusle.pdf) - The simple cover is spotted and shows traces of usage; the frontispice is missing! (a simple copy comes with the book); pages uncut and partly chipped; one page a bit torn and spotted; the last 5 sheets with bigger spot, else a good copy [Der einfache Einband mit altersgemäßen Gebrauchsspuren; Frontispiz fehlt leider; unbeschnitten; 1 Blatt angerissen; 6 Blatt etwas fleckig, sonst gut]. - Scarce!
