The Necronomicon: Vhallennes Edition

Scholars have uncovered what appears to be a French translation of the Necronomicon in the small town of Vhallennes. The work dates back to 1751 and seems to be based on the original Arabic manuscript, at least according to the marginalia left by the translator. If true, this is incredibly exciting news. Not only for the knowledge contained within, but the possibility that more copies from the same print run may be discovered.

The first batch of pictures to be released are quite intriguing.

This is an amazing find! What I'd give to get my hands on one of those copies!

Are they taking the tome back to Miskatonic University for examination?
