Letters on Witchcraft and Demonology: Now Available!
This is one of the best single works of witch-and-demon lore ever created; dating to the end of the Enlightenment it is partially historical, partially philosophical, and is perhaps the most important work from Walter Scott, who himself is one of the most important literary figures of his era. This work is a compilation of ten letters written by Scott on the subject, intricately sourced to secondary texts, and is altogether a fine resource for any academic or occultist.
If you desire references to and anecdotes about illusion, possession, exorcism, the burning times, demon worship, or Satan, this is the work for you.
This edition has been rendered into modern English except for a few quoted passages from antiquated sources which Scott has used, which were retained for continuity.
