In well preserved condition. 220 pages, with illustrations throughout. The boards and binding are solid and tight with minimal shelfwear. Ex libris from the library of Nicholas C. Bishop-Culpeper on the inside front board. Pennethorne Hughes was a well noted English Aleister Crowley and occult collector with longstanding ties to the Weiser Antiquarian bookseller. The pages are crisp and clean save for some foxing on the first blank page. The dust jacket is in very good condition with some wear and one closed tear on the back cover; it still retains its original price and has not been clipped. A classic study of the history of witchcraft from Antiquity to its decline in Europe.
