About Book

Book Description
1845. This work contains the most interesting trial for witchcraft ever known, printed from an imperfect manuscript by Mary Schweidler's father, Abraham Schweidler, the Pastor of Coserow, in the island of Usedom. After careful examination into the nature and characteristics of witchcraft, Meinhold perceived that among all these strange and often romantic stories, not one surpassed the "amber witch" in lively interest; and he decided to throw her adventures into the form of a romance. Also found in this volume are thes tale entitled "Undine" and "Sintram and His Companions," a Northern tale from the German of Baron de la Motte Fouque.
