16mo. pp. 12 p.l.(incl. engraved title), 636, [33]. woodcut ornaments & initials. contemporary vellum, overlapping fore-edges (title stained, with institutional rubberstamp in lower margin). Second Edition (first: 1597) of this interesting compilation on apparitions and demons. "Grosse's Magica is an exceedingly extensive and learned compilation of magical 'precedent cases', and his sources extend from Homer to Petrarch, Luther and Melanchthon. He seems to be mainly interested in showing that demons are essentially swindlers who, although really of a satanic nature, pretend to be angels in order to entice ignorant, unsuspecting, and credulous people into Satan's net." (Faber du Faur) "C'est, avec celui de Lavater, l'ouvrage le plus complet sur les spectres et les revenants." (Dorbon) This important work was apparently overlooked by Thorndike. Grosse drew his material from a variety of sources, a listing of which is given following the dedicatory epistle. Caillet remarks that this edition is attractive and relatively rare. Caillet II 4788.
