GLANVILL, Joseph; MORE, Henry; HORNECK, Anthony
Saducismus Triumphatus, or, Full and plain evidence concerning witches and apparitions: in two parts: the first treating of their possibility, the second of their real existence
London: Tho. Newcomb, for S. Lownds at his shop, 1682. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. A rare, late 17th-century printing of two famed English philosophical essays by Joseph Glanvill and Dr. Henry More. These two English philosophers were known to have influenced each other on a variety of philosophical issues. Their works were often found published together as is the case with this 1682 printing of 'Saducismus Triumphatus'. First published in 1681, 'Saducismus Triumphatus' is one of the most iconic 17th-century books on witchcraft. It was in this book that More and Glanvill confirmed the existence of witches in Sweden, citing their use of supernatural powers, magic, and summoning poltergeists. This book was known to heavily influence Cotton Mather on his works on witchcraft as well as the handling of witches during the Salem Witch Trials. Glanvill was responsible for creating the story of the Drummer of Tedworth, famous ghost story!
