XXVIII+640pp The text block here is too heavy for the thin binding, hence this book is rarely found in nice condition. This copy is quite acceptable. Grant's book is rarely cited by authorities because his scholarship is never footnoted. He seems to be most valuable when discussing British folklore and pre-Christian religion and custom. His sections on witchcraft are most made up of accounts he has uncovered and related in narrative form. Nothing is known of the author and he is not listed in the DNB or Allibone's. spine lettering dull as usual with this edition, hinges cracked and strained, joints worn, top of spine a bit frayed, o/w very good publ's decorated brown cloth in imitation of alligator skin, sewn, the title page is attractively lettered in both sans-serif and old English type and is partially rubricated.

Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press
Limited to 800 copies
The Arcanum of the 'fallen angel' Lucifer evokes such concepts as heresy, rebellion, pride, liberation from the bonds of demiurgic oppression, and impetus for human evolution.
