The Superstitions of Witchcraft is a book by English activist Howard Williams, first published in 1865. The book covers the extensive history of witchcraft, mostly covering Europe and Colonial America, but going back to pre-Biblical days to explore the roots of the subject. A scholarly book with extensive footnotes and lots of references, the book is a timeline of the practise of witchcraft, it's relationship with the church and with science, the superstition, hysteria and paranoia surrounding it particularly in medieval times, the characters associated with it, such as John Dee and Edward Kelly, and of course, the witch trials.
This book has 105 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1865.
