Idée generale de la théologie payenne, Servant de Refutation au Systeme de Mr. Bekker. Touchant L'existence & l'Operation des demons. Ou Traitté Historique des Dieux du Paganisme.Benjamin Binet. Jean de Fresne, Amsterdam, 1699. Second Edition. Arefutation of theories outlined by Balthasar Bekker in his book about the Enchanted World of Demons, or 'Betooverde Weereld.'

Sections involve Satan, the Jewish Pagan rites, the worship of serpents, Oracles, Mysteries, and similar. The author concludes the attitude of Catholicism and the Reformation against sorcery. Rare vellum bound duodecimo (12mo), nicely kept with handwritten title to crown. Page edges stained red. Pages trimmed a little close along the foredge affecting a few letters in the preface and occasional glosses. A few minor worm holes, touching a few letters, otherwise unmarked and in amazing shape. 227pp., complete. Text in French.
