Description


"Witch Covens and the Grand Masters" is a detailed treatise on the subject of witchcraft written by Montague Summers, exploring in particular their hierarchy, their 'sabbat', and related practices. Augustus Montague Summers (1880 - 1948) was an English clergyman and author most famous for his studies on vampires, witches and werewolves-all of which he believed to be very much real. He also wrote the first English translation of the infamous 15th-century witch hunter's manual, the "Malleus Maleficarum", in 1928. This vintage book will appeal to those with an interest in the occult and is not to be missed by collectors of Summers' famous work. Other notable works by this author include: "A Popular History of Witchcraft" (1937), "Witchcraft and Black Magic" (1946), and "The Physical Phenomena of Mysticism" (1947). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author and essay by Caroline Taylor Stewart.
