Johann Weyer's "Pseudomonarchia Daemonum" is considered the great-granddaddy of demonic catalogues. Many later works, including Scot's "Discoverie of Witchcraft" and the Goetia, are considered derivatives of Weyer's classic. A limited quantity of this real leather-bound edition of "The False Hierarchy of Demons: Illustrated English Translation of Pseudomonarchia Daemonum" were produced.

This new definitive translation of Weyer's four hundred year old encyclopedic work of demonology includes digitally enhanced and enlarged versions of de Plancy's 19th century woodcuts from Dictionnaire Infernal, demonic seal reproductions and newly commissioned full-color illustrations from an international team of fantasy artists, each providing a unique modern vision of these infernal beings.

Each octavo volume is bound in red leather with a black leather spine and gold foil embossing. The English text is shown in black, side-by-side with the original Latin text in red. In addition, the book has a new index, bookmark and full-color endpapers. The book is delivered in a designer box. The "Pseudomonarchia Daemonum" was originally published as an appendix to the hugely popular "De Prestigiis Daemonum." Since then, it has been used as the definitive reference and source for dozens of grimoires including The Lesser Key of Solomon and Dictionnaire Infernal.
