[8], 238 pages, cloth, DJ, very good. From the dust jacket: "Here is a startling disclosure of the many forms witch-hunting and believe in witchcraft have taken in America from the earliest times, and an inquiry into their causes and consequences. How did this frightening load of superstitions spread up and down the Atlantic Seaboard in days when the Colonists were busily rejecting many of the ancient prejudices and hatreds of Europe? With humor and her customary historical thoroughness, Miss Booth portrays the witchcraft delusion in all its hideousness, digs under surface manifestations for origins, and presents the drama of the witch hunts inside and outside the provincial courts.
