Charles Fort - Le Livre des Damnés


Charles Fort (1874-1932) was a true skeptic by nature. One of those who believe nothing, and does not take a position on anything. He claimed to be an "intermediatist," one who believes nothing is real and nothing is unreal. Actually, he was an anti-dogmatist who collected weird and bizarre stories.
Fort spent a good part of his adult life in the New York City public library examining newspapers, magazines, and scientific journals. He was looking for accounts of anything weird or mysterious which didn't fit with current scientific theories. He collected accounts of frogs and other strange objects raining from the sky, UFOs, ghosts, spontaneous human combustion, the stigmata, psychic abilities... He published four collections of weird tales and anomalies during his lifetime: Book of the Damned (1919), New Lands (1923), Lo! (1931), and Wild Talents (1932). Here's the 1st french edition of Book of the Damned. This one is dedicated by Jacques Bergier and Louis Pauwels to Swiss journalist René Payot.
