Item Description: Ace, New York, 1970. First Ace Edition. Softcover. Pocket-sized paperback. 284pp. (+ iv adverts) The first Ace Books edition of this well-known work, reprinted from the original 1830 edition. Sir Walter Scott had been interested in witchcraft and the supernatural since childhood, and agreed to write a volume on witchcraft during a period of recuperation from an illness. Scott already had an extensive personal library to draw from, but was able to get access to transcripts of then-unpublished trials and other primary sources which he used extensively. His book, which was first published in 1830, was therefore much more than the the popular history that it might otherwise have been. Small cigarette burn to bottom edge of front cover affecting the bottom edge of the first few leaves, small scuff on front cover, wrappers rubbed (particularly at edges), pages yellowed, generally well worn but still a solid Good+ copy.

Item Description: John Murray, London, 1831. hb. engraved frontispiece (illustrator). 2nd edition. 12mo, pp. ix, 390. Former owner's name and date of "29 Nov 1848" on front free endpaper. Scott (1771-1832) was the "father of the historical novel". He was born in Edinburgh and was, in his later years, a famous poet, novelist, historian, antiquarian, editor and biographer. Arguably, at the time of his death, he was the greatest writer in the English language since Shakespeare. This title was first published in 1830 and a second edition, which we offer herewith, was published in 1831. It purports to be a series of ten letters addressed to his son-in-law and biographer, J. G. Lockhart, in which the author surveys opinions respecting demonology and witchcraft from the Old Testament period to his own day. He adopts a "rationalist" approach to his subject and supernatural events are attributed to "excited passions", credulity or physical illness. Our copy is bound in a contemporary brown cloth. There is a touch of foxing to the frontispiece, but the contents are otherwise remarkably clean and unsoiled. The binding is tight and the cloth shows minimal wear. Altogether, a very good copy. Bound in period brown cloth with gilt spine lettering. Bookseller Inventory # 045085

Item Description: London : Charles Tilt, 1835., 1835. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. 1835 Walter Scott Letters on Demonology & Witchcraft WITCHES Fairies Devil Magic “Having adopted our present ideas of the Devil as they are expressed by his nearest acquaintances, the witches!” – Walter Scott, Letters. One of Walter Scott’s final works, this first edition encompasses everything of Scott’s interests – witchcraft and the supernatural. According to Todd & Bowden, Scott’s interest in witchcraft and demonology lead to other subjects including fairies, elves, ghosts, magicians, Scandinavian satyrs, and even astrology! This work was part of a series of books called “Murray’s Family Library.” Scholars have recognized these letters as one of the earliest attempts to deal with demonology from a scientific standpoint rather than simply spiritual or religious. This edition is illustrated with 12 plates by the famous artist George Cruikshank. Considered a modern Hogarth, Cruikshank’s art appeared in many famous works of literature including Charles Dickens.
