“Admirable and extremely interesting….An important and valuable contribution to our knowledge of this subject. The work treats of two closely related topics, a narrative of the witch trials with their attendant circumstances during this period and a discussion of contemporary opinion about witchcraft. It was first begun as an essay submitted at Yale University in partial requirement for the doctorate of philosophy, then it was awarded by the American Historical Association the Adams Prize in European history. As now published it has received the scholarly supervision of Professor George L. Burr of Cornell. This long and careful evolution should lend weight to the author’s conclusions and be considered as one of the many shreds of evidence of his painstaking scholarship.” -The South Atlantic Quarterly, Volume 11, 1912
