413. SUMMERS, Montague: The History of Witchcraft and Demonology [Together With] The Geography of Witchcraft. London: Kegan Paul, Trench, Trubner and Co., Ltd., 1926 and 1927 FIRST EDITIONS, FIRST IMPRESSIONS 2 Vols. Octavo pp. xv, 353, [16 ads.] and xi, 623. Bound in recent half black morocco leather, black cloth boards, raised bands, gilt titles and centres to spines. Both volumes illustrated with black and white plates. A little very light foxing to first couple of leaves of the first volume, faint water stain to top edge of second volume, otherwise the books are internally clean without writing or other marks. Eccentric certainly, but pioneering works that brought the history of European witch hunts and trials to a general readership. A beautiful presentation of these classic works on Witchcraft, published as part of the History of Civilisation series. Coumont [S113.1] [S113.5]
