Baptism, Marriage [Publisher, Internet Archive] is a translation by Olchar E Lindsann from the original French Baptême, Marriage. by Simon “The Mapah” Ganneau. There is also a page of biographical information about Ganneau, followed by Satrical Article on the Mapah from The Wasps by Alphonse Karr.

“After the Romanticist sculptor and phrenologist Simon Ganneau was visited by the spirit of his recently deceased wife, he founded the Evadamiste movement, a hybrid of occultism, gnosticism, feminism, and utopian socialism. Though small, the movement lasted for twenty years and at one time counted many influential activists and occultists among its adherents, including Eliphas Levi, Flora Tristan, Alphonse Esquiros, and Alexandre Dumas. No text of the movement has ever been translated before. This eight-page pamphlet, first published in 1838, proclaims the coming new age, heralded by the androgenous male-female deity Evadam. Supplemented with a contemporary description of the Mapah by the avant-garde satirist Gustave Karr and a portrait by his acolyte Traviès.”—”Forgotten Avant-Gardist TLP #1-2: The Mapah Ganneau –– Baptism, Marrage; w/ Traviès & Gustave Karr, trans.
