Abstract

Thomas Potts’ famous account of the Pendle witch trials of 1612 is the only original source of information about the events, and in this excellent new version historian Robert Poole makes the text accessible and useable for twenty-first century readers for the first time. Accompanied by an extremely helpful introduction which summarises the affair in a clear and chronological way, this book is a must for everyone interested in the Pendle witches, and in the history of witchcraft, Lancashire and England.
