Book description
This fascinating book covers the lives and activities of the famous and lesser-known witches and sorcerers since 500 BC.

Beginning with the alchemist Pythagoras, it covers the history of sorcery and witchcraft in ancient society, then moves on to the medieval period, the Spanish Inquisition, the witches of England, France, and America, and closes with a discussion of magicians today.

In between, one meets Cornelius Agrippa, the temperamental 16th C Belgian magician; the Count of Cagliostro, whose powers seemingly enabled him to monopolize winning lottery tickers in 18th C London; and, of course, Johann Faust, the man who roused Mephistopheles himself. These and many more are dealt with in this intriguing work.
