Description:

 First published in 1834, Lives of Necromancers is perhaps one of the most thorough overviews of the lives and legends of both fictional and historic individuals associated with the magical arts.  Godwin thoughtfully summarizes the histories and tales of mankind, from ancient Rome and Egypt to Eastern traditions all the way to the witchcraft trials of Europe and the new world.  Godwin presents a fascinating overview of mankind’s obsession with the magical arts and the impact that obsession has on the collective psyche.

This historical work provides a unique insight into the lives of some of the most famous, and infamous, alleged magicians, sorcerers, and necromancers of humanity.  Within these pages you will everyone from the legendary Merlin to Queen Elizabeth's personal necromancer Dr. John Dee.  From the classical myths of necromancy found amoung the Greeks to the tragedy of the Inquisition and witchcraft trials, Godwin chronicles humanity's quest to extend beyond the mundane...and the consequences of such desires.

This download is an exact galley of the print product.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
