A two-volume set expanding upon the author's "Lectures on Witchcraft," published in 1831. Provides details (as the author saw them) of "the incidents and circumstances connected with the witchcraft prosecutions in 1692, at the village and in the town of Salem. ... As showing how far the beliefs of the understanding, the perceptions of the senses, and the delusions of the imagination, may be confounded, the subject belongs not only to theology and moral and political science, but to physiology, in its original and proper use, as embracing our whole nature; and the facts presented may help to conclusions relating to what is justly regarded as the great mystery of our being, -- the connection between the body and the mind." (preface) Please note that this is an original printed set and not a 20th-century or 21st-century reprint.
