About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Melampronoea: or a discourse of the polity and kingdom of darkness. Together with a solution of the chiefest objections brought against the being of witches. by HALLYWELL, Henry.

Description:

First Edition. 12mo. pp. [16], 118. Re-bound / re-backed preserving the original calf boards. The boards are well rubbed but treated for preservation. Inner hinges are strengthened. No paste-downs or fly-leaves are present. This copy lacks the final blank leaf. A signature – "John Brand 1802" is printed in a miniscule early hand on the verso of the title. (Uncertain if this is the famed English antiquarian John Brand (1744-1806). Hallywell’s book is not mentioned in the sale catalogue of his library printed in 1807). The interior pages contain some age-toning. The leaves in gathering H (pp. 101-112) are browned. An occasional minor marginal chip or tear is neatly repaired. A small tear in the upper corner tip of the title page is sealed. Miniscule marginal corner-tip chipping is present to the first few leaves. The last two leaves contain marginal chipping to the fore-edges. Bottom marginal edge and corner to page 81 is rough. Henry Hallywell, a Cambridge Master of Arts and Fellow of Christ’s College, was a friend of the Cambridge Platonist Henry More. Hallywell’s "Melampronoea" is a polemic against skeptics who would deny the existence of the "kingdom of darkness," fallen angels and witchcraft. The author strongly believed that witches and magicians could be in league with demonic agents. Hallywell discusses the nature and order of demons, and gives examples of demon worship, demonic possession, witchcraft and magic in reference to ancient and contemporary sources. An uncommon book. [Coumont H11.1; Rosenthal 4042; Cornell, p. 259; ESTC R9358; McAlpin IV, p. 57]. Bookseller Inventory #
