    The Irish Infernal...

    I have a much-worn copy of the last reprint of this book, with pages falling out, so I'm excited about this new paperback edition. Inside are infernal characters from 1223 to the late eighteen hundreds. Irish witches, their familiars, demons and devils all carefully described in some pretty amazing accounts that lovers of the occult will treasure.
