The History of Magic
The Beginnings of Magic - The art of magic, that of producing extraordinary phenomena in opposition to the laws of science, since the dawn of time has had the power to both frighten and fascinate. During prehistoric times, it is likely that many individuals scattered around the world realized that they possessed the talent to mystify their peers. It is in this manner that they became the first witches or wizards. Several prehistoric utensils and illustrations found in caves around 50,000 BC seem to attest to this. It is believed that magical rites were practiced in religious ceremonies. Sorcerers or healers at this time had both the knowledge of basic principles of life and nature (as the beneficial effects of certain plants or potions on the body…) and probably also had the ability to deceive their fellow companions both orally and visually.
The above illustrations by Emile Bayard (1837 - 1891) are from the book Histoire de la Magie. Bayard was successful by a young age and had published cartoons in newspapers by the time he was 15. When completing illustrations for books, he never used photographs, preferring an interview with the author. The overall success of his illustrations was that, according to him, the reader could comprehend the book by only seeing his prints.

Princesse de Lamballe:
Born as Marie Louise of Savoy, she would be one of Marie Antoinette’s most intimate friends. She was made “Superintendent of the Queen’s Household”, the highest rank for a lady-in-waiting. Marie Antoinette became incredibly close to the Princesse when she was introduced to court after her husband’s death. Courtiers were quick to notice the intimacy between the two, this would seal their fates later in life. Unlike the saucy Duchesse de Polignac, the Princesse had no gossips about her private life. Leading a respectable public and private image. When the revolution started, she fled to Bath,England in hopes of appealing to people to save The Queen. She returned out of loyalty to the Queen to France. When she arrived, she was taken along with the Marquess of Tourzel to a salon in which they ordered her to swear an oath against The Queen. Out of her loyalty and love to The Queen, she refused. Consequently, she was thrown outside and raped,mutilated,and murdered within minutes. Her head is said to be taken to a cafe where the customers drank to it. It was also taken to a salon where they would make her hair recognizable and penetrate her head on a pike. This would be taken to The Temple, where the revolutionaries had planned to take the head to The Queen’s window where she would have to look and kiss at her lover’s face (this was because of malicious libels published against them to destroy their reputation). The guards would not allow it but someone said to the King “They wish to show the Queen the head of Madame Lamballe” and the Queen promptly fainted. The head and body of the Princesse were never recovered. Marie Antoinette would have to suffer the atrocities the revolutionaries did until her death at the swift blow of the guillotine. Her death was less horrific than the poor fate of the Princesse of Lamballe.
