About this Item

"Second Edition." 8vo. 420p. Bound in quarter dark brown morocco with marbled boards. Binding contains some minor spots of rubbing. The edges of the book block are rubbed or discolored. Pages are clean with only an occasional faint spot of foxing. Jules Michelet (1798-1874) was an important French historian and romantic writer who held the chair of history at the College de France. His "La sorcière" was first published in 1862. Part I is a highly romanticized recreation of several witches lives. Part II contains a history of witchcraft and demonic possession. Michelet discusses several important cases including among others Louis Gauffridi and the Ursuline Nuns, Urban Grandier and the demoniacs of Loudun; Madeline Bavent and the demoniacs of Louviers. Michelet argues that the practice of witchcraft was a form of social rebellion against feudal oppression. [Coumont M66.3; Caillet 7528]. Bookseller Inventory # 000612
