A 1928 edition of the Malleus Maleficarum has popped up on eBay again. This is the edition of the Malleus which was translated by Rev. Montague Summers, and which we have posted here on this web site in its entirety. This edition was published by John Rodker and was printed on Dutch paper.
According to the seller;
“I am proud to offer this stunning this copy of the Malleus Maleficarum, The mother of all witchcraft dilution books. This copy have been personally inspected and found to be free of markings or highlights. No old owners names or inscriptions. The binding is strong. Holding and reading this work is almost like a form of time travel. A rare gem that continues to speak to us.”
While not many of us are likely to fork out $500 for an edition of the Malleus Maleficaurm, there are additional photos on the eBay page which will provide a good look at an increasingly rare edition.
