Picture book of Devils, Demons and Witchcraft
Devils, the macabre, suffering, orchestras and alphabets of death; no sourcebook for the fainthearted! The collection stretches chronologically from ancient times to 1913 but stresses the 15th to 17th centuries, and the predominant style is the woodcut. Here you will find witches and warlocks, the antichrist, Holbein`s 'Dance of Death', Momento Mori in various representations, the winged hourglass and scythe, devils in political disputes during the reformation, the persecution of witches, the battles of good and bad angels over men's` souls, deathbed scenes, the four horsemen of the apocalypse, hell, skulls, and the tree of death. Good clear reproductions of a fantastic wealth of historical material.

Illustrations: 244 representations in many different styles.
