' Some Considerations about Witchcraft in a Letter to Robert Hunt, Esq.', 'An appendage to this first part, Concerning the Possibility of Apparitions and Witchcraft....' 'An Answer to a Letter of a Learned Psychopyrist Concerning the True Notion of a Spirit' Henry Moore, Saducismus Triumphatus: or, Full and Plain evidence concerning Witches and Apparitions The Second Part....' 'A continuation of the collection: or, An addition of some few more ... stories of apparitions and witchcraft' Henry Moore, ''A whip for the droll, fidler to the atheist ... sent upon the occasion of the drummer of Tedworth, in a letter to ... Henry More D.D.'. .

Notations by previous owners - Sanderson (most likely) made corrections in the text in a few places where type was light or words missing most notably on pp 230 where he crossed the name out, put corrected name in also crossed out place name and put correct place name in. Starkey noted in ink pp 70 " This story gave rise to Mr Addison's Comedy The Drummer or Haunted House." A notation in pencil by another owner pp 170 " This....nothing of a steam engine.", Starkey noted in ink on the back of the title page of 'A Continuation...' " All the tricks in this relation were performed by one Jo. Collins as he afterwards (confessed?) (see?) an account of it in a book called "Anecdotes" in 2 volumes'."

"The book affirmed the existence of witches with malign supernatural powers of magic, and attacked skepticism concerning their abilities. The book strongly influenced Cotton Mather and was influential in the Salem witch trials in Salem, Massachusetts. Mather's Wonders of the Invisible World is largely modeled after this book and its arguments. The book is also famous for telling the ghost story of the Drummer of Tedworth, an early poltergeist story." Wikipedia.

1040 Graham, Winston The Spanish Armadas.
Doubleday and Co. 1972. Hardcover in DJ. Good/Good Quarto 
288 pp

"The history of a great naval war reveals a wealth of interest and excitement unknown to the general reader. For most people the conflict between England and Spain in the sixteenth century consisted solely in the destruction of the Great Armada in 1588 by Drake, Howard, and the English weather.

These pages place that Armada in it true position, as only the most spectacular of many attempts by the Spanish to conquer England and make it Catholic, first by friendship, then by the marriage of Philip to Mary, and later by battle. A vivid summary is made of the disruptive forces in Europe that, thought thirty years, broke down the tradition of amity between England and Spain. It shows how, from the meeting in 1554 between Philip and Elizabeth the two maintained their respect for each other and a faÁade of peace long after the wish for peace had gone.

Although the clash of the two great fleets provides the central theme of this work, it makes clear that the defeat of the First Armada did not mean the end of the Spanish navy but rather its beginning on new lines. After 1588 England had only one other real success against Spain, at Cadiz in 1596. Spain launched three more armadas. "

' His father came from Switzerland and set up as a jeweler in London, where he fashioned George II's coronation crown... he became Paymaster and Adjutant of the Surrey Militia, a position he was unsuited for, since he kept no books and gave no receipts, with the result that the private fortune he had inherited from his father had to be used to make up deficits.

He published his Antiquities of England and Wales ... and The Antiquities of Scotland . Burns met him while he was in Scotland collecting material for his Scottish work...Burns took to this fat, jovial man with an inexhaustible fund of stories, and suggested to him that he should include Alloway Kirk in his forthcoming volume...

In June 1790, Burns sent Grose a prose witch tale with a variant in a letter to Grose, following it up with a rhymed version, the superb 'Tam o' Shanter'. Grose naturally preferred the poetic version, and 'Tam o' Shanter' was published in the second volume of Grose's The Antiquities of Scotland. Grose also inspired Burns to write the witty lines 'On Captain Grose's Peregrinations through Scotland':

"Hear, Land o' Cakes, and brither Scots, Frae Maidenkirk to Johnny Groat's — If there's a hole in a' your coats, I rede you tent it: A chield's amang you takin' notes, And faith he'll prent it! If in your bounds ye chance to light Upon a fine, fat, fodgel wight O' stature short but genius bright, That's he, mark weel — And wow! He has an unco sleight O' cauk and keel...."

1087 Haberland, Wolfgang The Art of North America.
Greystone Press 1968. Hardcover in DJ. Good Good Octavo 
257 pp ‘As an ethnologist as weel as an art historian, Haberland has drawn on the full range of our growing knowledge of the indigenous peoples of North America. In this survey of their art and architecture, he begins by examining the background of the early settlements of the New World and the broadly diffused rock paintings, and then deals in turn with the Eskimos, the Indian tribes of the various regions of the present U.S. – the Northwest, California, the Southwest, the Plains, the Northeast, and the Southeast- and finally the original inhabitants of the West Indies. The geographic, economic, social, and religious factors that conditioned the development of the art of North America receive full attention, and the author shows how intimately the styles of the artists were influenced the nature of the raw materials available – bone in the North, wood in the Pacific Northwest, stone and clay in the Southwest. The illustrations have been chosen for their intrinsic appeal no less than for their documentary interest, and demonstrate that the art of these regions can rival the monuments of Mexico and Peru. Many of the subjects illustrated are here reproduced for the first time. For all their richness and variety, the arts of indigenous North America have, until recently, been largely neglected; this volume goes far to redress the balance. 60 plates in full color and 95 line drawings are supported by eight maps, five chronological charts, and a detailed bibliography.’ 60 full-color plates, 95 black/white illustrations.
