623 pp, 8vo (8 1/2" H). "(R)elates in considerable detail famous cases of witchcraft and demonology from earliest times to the present day. Summers limits himself to Greece and Rome and the Christian heirs of their tradition - England, Scotland, France, Italy and Spain, with a long look at the fantastic outbreaks of witchcraft in New England. (In) the present work he is careful to distinguish everywhere between genuine instances of demoniacal possession and those outbreaks of contagious hysteria that led to the sacrifice of many harmless lives."
