The Discoverie of Witchcraft

Postby Sebastian B » January 6th, 2019, 6:57 am

I have been meaning for a while now to really study a book in depth. After some thinking and taking in to account my interest in both history and religion, I decided on The Discoverie of Witchcraft. It will be interesting to tackle this book both from a historical and a magical point of view. :)

To help you, there are :

The Annotated Discovery of Witchcraft by Stephen J. Forrester published in 2000
and
La Sorcellerie Dévoilée - Livre XIII by Philippe Saint-Laurent published in 2011 (It's a french book)

If you want to laugh, read all the interludes in CardMagic by Richard Kaufman published in 1979

Thank you Philippe,

I will have to look in to that. At the moment I am working with two books: Brinsley Nicholson wich is a reproduction of the first edition of Discoverie of Witchcraft (1886) and Richard Kaufmans reproduction.
