This book contains a series of letters written by Sir Walter Scott and addressed to J. G. Lockhart. The letters pertain to demonology and witchcraft, with Scott outlining and explaining his extensive knowledge of the subject. This volume is highly recommended for those with an interest in the occult, and it is not to be missed by collectors of Scott’s seminal work. Contents include: “Origin of the General Opinions respecting Demonology among Mankind”, “The Belief in the Immortality of the soul is the main Inducement to credit its occasional re-appearance”, “The Philosophical Objections to the Apparition of an Abstract Spirit little Understood by the Vulgar and Ignorant”, etc. Sir Walter Scott (1771 – 1832) was a Scottish playwright, historical novelist, and poet. Other notable works by this author include: Ivanhoe (1819), Rob Roy (1817), and Old Mortality (1916). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive.
