The Black Pullet

Type: Books
The Black Pullet is a strange work that is at once a grimoire detailing the use of talismans, and a short story regarding a French Napoleonic soldier being saved by a wise old Turkish mage from an angry mob. Written some time in the 18th century, it contains rather elaborate philosophy and is at least partly symbolic; some of the talismans show allusions to other works, notably the Rosary of the Philosophers and the Petit Albert.
