Re: Dammartin: Caractères alphabétiques

Dammartin’s book was republished recently in English (no mention of whether it is a bilingual edition or just the translation), the publisher’s website also includes some images from the original editions as well as from the new translation: ... rtin-1839/ ... rtin-1839/

Éliphas Lévi, Papus, Georges Muchéry, A. E. Waite, all cite this book. See the following:
(p. 366) ... ic/page/n8
(p. 232)

As for reactions to this theory, see “Le Symbole et l’allégorie” by Edgar Baes, 1898 (from page 528 of the PDF), pages 37, 39, passim.
