First published in this format in 1884, this early chronological account forms a complete overview of the history of witchcraft, "wizardry, and spectral appearances" in Scotland before 1724. An Editorial note introduces the author, Charles Kirkpatrick Sharpe (1781-1851), and explains how this present volume was originally written as an introductory chapter to Sharpe's 1819 edition of "Memorialls; or the Memorable Things that fell out within the Island of Brittain from 1638 to 1684 by the Rev. Mr. Robert Law." but came to be regarded as a work which was more important in its own right. A Biographical Sketch of the 'polished and aristocratic', 'capricious and eccentric' author follows, with a good description of the scope of Sharpe's correspondence, literary labours, etchings and collections. The historical account itself is presented in twelve chapters, with an Appendix, the editor's own compilation of a 'Short List of Books on Scottish Witchcraft and Superstition' and an Index.
