Yale Studies in English, volume 55. "When Old English was a spoken language there was no scholarship, in the strict sense. How andwhen did the study of the language and literature of Old English begin and what obstacles did it meet in its development? The first old English book was published in 1566 and the first professorship of the language in an English university was established in 1795. This study has considerably wider implications than its title might imply. It connects a literary movement ofa peculiar kind with the general political and religious history of Englan d. In a broader sense, it touches upon all men - in what are they interested, and why, at a given time? how do they learn? how do they build upon the past?" - from the dj.

9 ANGLO, Sydney, (ed.) Damned Art : Essays in the Literature of Witchcraft. First Edition in dustjacket

ANGLO, Sydney, (ed.). The Damned Art : Essays in the Literature of Witchcraft. London : Routledge & Kegan Paul, (1977). First Edition. Pp (4),v-viii,1-258,(2). Index. 8vo, black cloth, silver lettering to spine. "Learned demonological literature, though frequently cited, is little read; and facile generalisation about such material has preceded the detailed study of individual texts. The Damned Art seeks to reverse this process. Only indirectly concerned with the unanswerable problems of popular mentality which have largely occupied recent students of medieval and renaissance witch persecution, the book approaches witchcraft and demonology through literary records. The works discussed deal not with the inchoate prejudices of the multitude but rather with contemporary theories propounded by those who sought either to justify, or to refute, persecution. Eight scholars of differing interests, and with different approaches to their subject, examine a selection of important, representative witchcraft texts - published in England, France, Germany, Italy and America - setting them within their intellectual context,and analysing both their style and argument. Thus not only the emotionalis m, but also the methodology of witchcraft belief is set before the modern reader; and the latter is, perhaps, even more harrowing than the former." (from he dj). Contents : 1. Evident authority and authoritative evidence : The malleus maleficarum (by Sydney Anglo). 2. Witchcraft and magic in Renaissance Italy : Gianfrancesco Pico and his Strix (by Peter Burke). 3. Johann Weyer's De praestigiis daemonum : unsystematic psychopathology (by Christopher Baxter). 4.

In the Studies of the German Historical Institute, London series. "This book dealswith the court as a crucial center of government and politics, and as the dominant focus for the ruling elites. Princes, Patronage, and the Nobility shows how the early modern court gradually developed from the medieval royal household, and how it functioned in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Comparing England, Germany, France, Spain as well as the Netherlands and Italy, the editors find that several common themes emerge: the problem ofintegrating a number of often vastly different provinces and principalitie s through the attraction of a court; the capital city's function as the basis of the court and as its rival; the role of the Court during the great religious conflicts of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries; and the courtas an instrument for domesticating the nobility and a stronghold of aristo cratic influence." - from the dj. 1.
