1933 The God of the Witches
What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Illustrated, Original Binding, Publishers' Original Binding, Scarce, With Dustwrapper
The scarce first edition. In the publisher's full cloth binding with the original, unclipped dust wrapper. With twenty-one plates. Collated complete. An interesting work by Margaret Alice Murray, regarding medieval religion and witchcraft, specifically a cult of the witches. Murray was a firm believer in a witch-cult theory, which argued that all the European witches followed a definitive religion which worshipped a horned god. Murray's works have been highly influential in the modern study of witchcraft. Margaret Alice Murray was an Egyptologist, archaeologist, anthropologist and folklorist. She was president of the Folklore Society between 1953 and 1955, and was the first female archaeology lecture appointed in the United Kingdom. The half title page is present.
