First published in 1937, this volume offers an overview of witchcraft and its practices and history, written by Montague Summers. Augustus Montague Summers (1880 - 1948) was an English clergyman and author most famous for his studies on vampires, witches and werewolves-all of which he believed to be very much real. He also wrote the first English translation of the infamous 15th-century witch hunter's manual, the &quote;Malleus Maleficarum&quote;, in 1928. Contents include: &quote;Of the Practice and Profession of Witchcraft; of the Contact; and the Familiar&quote;, &quote;Of the Practice of Witchcraft; of the Malice and Mischief of Witches; of the Devi's Mark; and of the Grimore&quote;, &quote;Of the Witch Covens and their Grand Masters; of their Journey to the Sabbat; and of the Sabbat Orgy&quote;, etc. Other notable works by this author include: &quote;Witchcraft and Black Magic&quote; (1946) and &quote;The Physical Phenomena of Mysticism&quote; (1947). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
