It's an engraving called "The first test of the initiate" done by Émile Bayard for Paul Christian's "L’Histoire de la magie", published in 1870. A few more images you're surely familiar with are lifted from this book as well, often mistaken as Doré's work.

You're welcome.

In case you're interested, here's a link to the online presence of The National Library of France where you can see / download the whole book.
