An historical essay concerning witchcraft : with observations upon matters of fact, tending to clear the texts of the Sacred Scriptures, and confute the vulgar errors about that point : and also two sermons: one in proof of the Christian religion; the other concerning the good and evil angels

Item is a book written by English minister bishop Francis Hutchinson to discredit the witchcraft trials taking place in England. The book is an analytical and critical account of previous witch trials, and argues strongly against witchcraft prosecution. Shortly after the book was published, Great Britain abolished the persecution of suspected witches. Item was printed for R. Knaplock, at Bishop's Head, and D. Midwinter, at the Three Crowns, in St. Paul's Church-yard.
