    Two twelvemo volumes. [xxviii], 486; xvi, [488] pages. Near contemporary full mottled calf, boards ruled in blind, spines tooled in gilt in compartments, five raised bands, brown and burgundy gilt morocco lettering labels, gilt board edges, all edges stained red, marbled endleaves. Some rubbing to extremities of bindings, else fine.

    With passages about evil spirits, dark magic, and bloodthirsty vampires. Calmet was skeptical about vampires, but his book only stoked the interest (and fear) of the public, leading to a new popularity of vampires.
