Summary:  From Pat Deveney's database:

Echo du Merveilleux, L'.
1897-1914 Bimonthly
Paris, France. Language: French. Publisher: Alfred Leclerc. Editor: Gaston Mery, scientific editor; and then his wife after his death.
1/1, January 1897-August 1914. 20 pp.

The surviving runs of this journal cease with no. 263 in December 1907, but Dorbon's Bibliotheca Esoterica (no. 5733) shows it continuing until 1914. Articles by Papus, Sedir, "Ely Star" (Eugene Jacob, 1847-1942), de Rochas, Paul Vuillaud, Camille Flammarion, Jules Lemaitre,"Jules Bois" (Henri Antoine Jules-Bois), J.K. Huysmans, A. Jounet. The journal featured occasional sheet music ("Chante des immortels"), articles on the dowsing rod, the haunting of Stanislas de Guaita, Nostradamus, haunted houses, vampires, extensive review of current periodicals, chiromancy, cartomancy, extensive reports on local French visionaries and healers, etc. In 1910 it published scathing exposures of Alberto de Sarak, Comte de Das—for which the journal, and others, were sued. Mery (1866-1909) was a former collaborator in Edouard Drumont's anti-Semitic journal La Libre Parole and a onetime follower of Henriette Couedon's prophecies of the coming of the Great Monarch (who, Mery decided, must be a descendent of the Man in the Iron Mask).
