First published in 1834, this monumental work takes an in-depth look at witchcraft and superstitious beliefs in Scotland through the ages. Drawing on historical accounts from the witch trials of the sixteenth and seventeenth century, and beyond, Dalyell covers the beliefs and folk practices in a variety of areas, including medicine, charms and amulets, sympathetic magic, mystical animals, plants and beings, and gives a detailed look at the testimonies given during the witch trials, and the methods of conviction and punishment used.

Split into eighteen chapters with extensive footnoting, this edition has all noted errata updated in the text, with addenda integrated into the references throughout.
