Periodical: Le Magicien

Summary:  From Pat Deveney's database:

Magicien, Le.
Journal des Sciences Occultes, Physiologiques, Philosophiques et Magnetiques.
Ce qui est en haut est comme ce qui est en bas, et ce qui est en bas comme ce qui est en haut
1883-1890 Semimonthly
Lyon, France. Language: French. Editor: Mme Louis Mond.
1/1, July 1, 1883-June 25, 1890. 8 pp., 10 francs.

The purpose of the journal, as announced in its first issues, was to popularize the forgotten and little known secrets of the world and to teach its readers the wonders of occult and physiological science in all their branches, magnetism in all its forms, occult and magnetic therapeutics, and occultism, all both theoretically and practically. This journal, as Christian Chanel has pointed out in his thesis on Max Theon, carried F. Ch. Barlet's translation of the "Veil of Isis" by "Zanoni" (Thomas Henry Burgoyne) that had appeared in the Occult Magazine, and marks the appearance of the H.B. of L. in France. Barlet regularly contributed to the journal (reviewing and excerpting the Occult Magazine and the Anti-Materialiste, and carrying on a controversy with Gabriel Delanne over the "perispirit") and also tried to translate Esoteric Buddhism for it until the copyright laws intervened. The widow Mond was also among the first to bring Nizier Philippe ("Maitre Philippe") to the attention of the world. Noted in exchanges of L'Initiation, April 1889, and reviewed scathingly in the issue of the same journal for May 1889, which mocks Mme Mond for her claims to be a Chevalier de l'ordre royal de Melusine and Noble patricienne de la ville de Rosarno (Italy) and for her publishing a pathetic pamphlet course (advertised for 0.35 francs) on magnetism. "Our readers are undoubtedly ignorant of the existence of the greatest occultist produced by the earth until the present. I speak of Mme Louis Mond, chevalier de l'ordre royal de Melusine (!) . . . ." The journal was a popular hodgepodge of the occult, astrology, dream interpretation, somnambulism, mesmerism, palmistry, advertisements for Mme Mond's "consultations somnambulistiques," etc. and totally out of step with the rising occultism of the more educated and intellectual mages of Paris in the 1890s, but while it lasted the journal reflected the twilight world of provincial France. Mme Mond was a graphologist and published a course on the subject and a graphological study of Jules Dupotet. Noted in L'etoile, March 1889. BL; BNF; BM Lyon.
