Periodical: Curiosite

Summary:  From Pat Deveney's database:

Curiosite, La.
Journal de l'Occultisme Scientifique / Revue des Sciences Psychiques.
Other titles: Curiosite. Revue des sciences psychiques
1889-1924 Semimonthly, weekly
Nice (and Tours or Paris during the winter), France. Language: French. Editor: Paul Sedir; Ernest Bosc
1/1, January 23, 1889-1924. 8 pp., 5 then 3 francs for 25 issues.

Bosc (1837-1913), who wrote most of the journal, was an archeologist and architectural historian, and also a prominent occultist, specializing in the "Celtic Renaissance" (i.e., the occultism of the ancient Celts), magic mirrors, and the use of psychotropic drugs in occultism. "Paul Sedir" (Yvon Le Loup, 1871-1926), like F. Ch. Barlet, one of his mentors, had a hand in every occult movement and society in France at the end of the nineteenth century. He shared many of Bosc's interests, writing on magic mirrors and plants, including psychoactive ones, but over time he increasingly turned away from occultism and toward Christian mysticism. The journal featured short articles on items of general interest in occultism, psychical research and magnetism and had a somewhat supercilious view toward spiritualism that led it to emphasize the frauds revealed by the exposures of phenomenal mediums. Crabtree 1227 and 1360. BNF.
