This tome features several accounts of convicted poisoners in seventeenth-century France, of which at that time not all the information presented here was then known.

It records the practice of sorcery, which featured the horror of new-born babies having their throats cut, as their blood was required for black arts. It's hard to believe that such things went on, but sadly they did.

I found these records interesting in some parts, but boring in others, thus I skipped over much of the analytical passages and detailed court procedure. ( )
