Witch, Warlock, and Magician by William Henry Davenport Adams was first published in 1889. Magic and the occult have a long history in Britain, with alchemists such as Roger Bacon, astrologers such as William Lilly, and occultists such as John Dee (a favourite with Queen Elizabeth I). Of course, there is also the less savoury side of that history - the witch hunts and trials of the 16th century. This book explores a select few notable figures in the world of magic, as well as discussing the history of witchcraft. Chapters include: Roger Bacon: The True And The Legendary; The Story Of Dr. John Dee; Dr. Dee’s Diary; Magic And Imposture: A Couple Of Knaves; The Last Of The English Magicians: William Lilly; English Rosicrucians; Early History Of Witchcraft In England; Witchcraft In England In The Seventeenth Century; The Decline Of Witchcraft In England; The Witches Of Scotland; and, The Literature Of Witchcraft.

This book has 197 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1889.

Production notes: This ebook of Witch, Warlock, and Magician was published by Global Grey on the 23rd August 2021. The artwork used for the cover is 'The Sorcerer' by Carl Spitzweg.
