About this Item

Second edition and with the translation, with additional material. Engraved frontispiece of Saul and Samuel, and a second full page engraving introducing the book which contains engraved vignettes of magical devils and extraordinary occurrences, also with a few small textual illustrations. 8vo, in a pleasing binding of full contemporary calf, restored at the back, incorporating raised bands, and gilt lettering. [16], 52, 162, [6], 78, [12], 273, 67, 45, 24, errata pp. A handsome and pleasing copy. Well preserved and with the text-block, clean, unpressed and unwashed. The first important work in English pertaining to Witchcraft and "the most influential English philosophical treatise on the subject of witches and witchcraft". ‘The intention here was to prove by intellectual reasoning that the supernatural was an absolute reality. Glanvill and his contemporary the Cambrige Platonist Henry More, attacked the extreme scepticism in these matters espoused by Descartes and Hobbes. Their defence of witchcraft, made after extensive enquiry into the many contemporary reported incidents of it, 'was the natural result of an attempt to find an empirical ground for a belief in the supernatural' (DNB) and was intended to combat what they believed to be an implied atheism in the thinking of Descartes and Hobbes.' see also Croft.
