Between 1450 and 1750, more than 100,000 people - mainly women - in Europe and colonial America were prosecuted for practising harmful magic and worshipping the devil. Tens of thousands were executed, often after being subjected to bestial tortures. Examines this persecution, and the religious hysteria which inspired it, tracing its roots back to the savage suppression of the heretical Waldensian sect by the Catholic Church. With the creation of the Inquisition, and the publication of the book 'Witchfinders' Bible', the craze soon spread across Europe and reached as far as the United States where, despite the infamy of the Salem Witch Trials, it was soon dismissed by a more rational population. Although witch trials continued in Scotland until 1727, Norway until 1760 and Hungary until 1777, the growth of scientific reason gradually gained ground from the witch hunters. ISBN: 1841931845.

Subtitle: "With an Introduction by Felipe Fernández-Armesto and essays by Martin Davies on Pere Posa and the printing of the Spanish Columbus Letter at Barcelona in 1493 and by Anthony Payne & Katherine Spears on Quaritch, the Spanish Columbus Letter, and America 1890–1892. Edited by Anthony Payne." Includes a colour facsimile of the original letter in the centre pages. The version of the Columbus Letter that London bookseller Bernard Quaritch bought in 1890 was the most valuable item of printed Americana to ever appear on the market. No other copy of this, the earliest edition - a folio printed in Spanish at Barcelona in 1493 - is known. Quaritch and his assistant Michael Kerney originally published "The Spanish Letter of Columbus" in 1981 (now reprinted), being the first authoritative study of the document. But, as Felipe Fernández-Armesto recounts in his introduction (new to this reprint), it nearly got dismissed as a forgery, in era of many forgeries. Quaritch's Letter did contain some errors – most of which were the result of assumptions common at the time or deficiencies of knowledge unremedied until later – but did its job effectively. It demonstrated, correctly, that the folio in question was printed at Barcelona in 1493 and that all other known editions of the Columbus Letter followed it. This was a service to his firm and to the Lenox Library (now part of the New York Public Library), which purchased the item. This new edition also includes an account of the printing of the original Spanish Columbus Letter in 1493 and, drawing on materials surviving in the Quaritch Archive, the story of how Quaritch, and his son, Alfred, marketed it in America.

A new history of drug use in sport. Argues that the idea of taking drugs to enhance performance has not always been the crisis or evil we now think it is. Instead, the late 19th century was a time of some experimentation and innovation largely unhindered by talk of cheating or health risks. By the interwar period, experiments had been modernised by exercise physiologists, but still there was little sense that this was contrary to the ethics or spirit of sport. World War 2 provided the impetus for both increased use of drugs and the emergence of an anti-doping response. By the late1950s a new ethics framework was imposed on the drugs question that constructed doping in highly emotive terms as evil. Alongside this emerged the science and procedural bureaucracy of testing. ISBN: 9780415357722. Our Book No: 15767. $40 AUD.

The Empire of Chance: How Probability Changed Science and Everyday Life (Reprint ed) [Ideas in Context Series]. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press. 340 pp. Paperback octavo, very good plus condition. (An in-stock secondhand printed-on-demand copy.) Describes how quantitative ideas of chance transformed the natural and social sciences, as well as daily life over the last 300 years. A continuous narrative connects the earliest application of probability and statistics in gambling and insurance, to the most recent forays into law, medicine, polling and baseball. Separate chapters explore the theoretical and methodological impact in biology, physics and psychology. Recurring themes include determinism, inference, causality, free will, evidence, and the shifting meaning of probability - but in dramatically different disciplinary and historical contexts. In contrast to the literature on the mathematical development of probability and statistics, this book centres on how these technical innovations remade our conceptions of nature, mind and society. Written by an interdisciplinary team of historians and philosophers, this readable, lucid account keeps technical material to an absolute minimum. It is aimed not only at specialists in the history and philosophy of science, but also at the general reader and scholars in other disciplines. ISBN: 052139838X. Our Book No: 15298. $30 AUD.

Cambridge: Cambridge University Press (CUP). 309 pp. Paperback octavo, very good condition, minor edgewear. This book revolutionises our understanding of race. Building upon the insight that races are products of culture rather than biology, demonstrates that the Bible - the key text in Western culture - has left a vivid imprint on modern racial theories and prejudices. Fixing his attention on the changing relationship between race and theology in the Protestant Atlantic world between 1600 and 2000, he shows that, while the Bible itself is colour-blind, its interpreters have imported racial significance into the scriptures. Kidd's study probes the theological anxieties that lurked behind the confident facade of of white racial supremacy in the age of empire and race slavery, as well as the ways in which racialist ideas left their mark upon new forms of religiosity. Essential reading for anyone interested in the histories of race or religion. ISBN: 0521797292. Our Book No: 10871. $25 AUD.

New Delhi: Manohar. 310 pp. Hardback small octavo, dustjacket, very good plus condition (in very good plus dustjacket), pictorial cover, tables, minor edgewear. Deccan like the rest of British India had all the social economic and material ingredients for proliferation of epidemic diseases. Its population lived in unsanitary conditions, consumed contaminated water, and was crowded into wretched houses: extreme poverty, sunk in debt, and suffering from serious food shortage and malnutrition. The existence of mass poverty and its denial by the colonial state made the situation worse. This book argues that the reason for dysentery diarrhoea and bowel complaints was really malnutrition undernourishment and the general poverty of the masses. Even though the diseases were associated with poverty and malnutrition, the British imperial medical establishment continued to blindly adhere to its non-contagion miasmatic ideology. When the imperial state created hundreds of miles of roads and railways, diseases like cholera malaria, smallpox and plague proliferated everywhere. ISBN: 8173043140. Our Book No: 17457. $30 AUD.

466. Tattersfield, Nigel (1999). Bookplates by Beilby & Bewick: A Biographical Dictionary of Bookplates from the Workshop of Ralph Beilby, Thomas Bewick & Robert Bewick, 1760 - 1849. London: British Library and Oak Knoll Press. 352 pp. Hardback large octavo, dustjacket, very good plus condition (in very good plus dustjacket), black & white drawings (engravings), frontispiece portrait. Heavy (1.2 Kg), and extra postage may be requested to destinations outside Australia. The spare-time production by Thomas Bewick of his celebrated natural histories was supported by the vigorous activity of a general engraving business involving Bewick, his partner Ralph Beilby and numerous apprentices. The workshop's surviving records are unique in their diversity and quantity, revealing a vast range of work, from banknotes and inscriptions on silver, to the making of type punches and bottle moulds. These records have been used in the study of engraved silver, pottery transfers and the preparatory studies for Bewick's wood engravings. But this biographical dictionary of the several hundred bookplates engraved on copper and wood - executed and printed in the workshop over a period of 89 years - is the most extensive and thorough in its use of primary sources. Lively enthusiasm and careful scholarship have combined to produce a valuable and truly pioneering work on a subject hitherto clouded by speculation and optimistic attribution. Very fully illustrated, with over 300 examples reproduced, and its wealth of biographical information on the owners of the bookplates represents an important contribution to the social history of the north of England.

These and similar ideas became entwined in centuries of medical ignorance and religious superstition. But this is not an exclusively "ancient" or "primitive" phenomenon: As late as the 19th century, many doctors opposed the use of anesthesia in childbirth because women had been condemned by God to "bring forth children in sorrow".
