SINISTRARI of Ameno, Rev. Father. Demonality Or Incubi and Succubi A Treatise ...
Paris: Isidore Liseux, 1879. First edition in English. From the library of Dr. C.B. Farrar with his bookplate. Small 8vo., recently rebound in purple fabricoid, xvi, (252), 6pp.ads. A fine copy in a not very attractive binding.
"Lodovico Maria Sinistrari (1622-1701) was the last of the demonologists in the inquisitorial tradition of Remy and Boguet. Originally a Franciscan friar, he became Professor of Theology at Pavia University, consultant to the supreme tribunal of the Inquisition at Rome, and Vicar-General to the Archbishop of Avignon. This work on demons was not known in his own time. Itself an expansion of a section in his most famous work, De Delictis et Poenis, or On Crimes and Punishments, the manuscript was only discovered in 1875. It was found in a London bookshop by the French publisher Isidore Liseux who paid sixpence for it. The work is devoted to the problems arising from the relations between devils and humans".
