Glanvill's 'Palpable evidence of spirits and witchcraft: in an account of the fam’d disturbance by the drummer, in the house of M. Mompesson’.'

Pepys first mentions reading “the late printed discourse of witches by a member of Gresham College” on 24 November 1666, which L&M say is Robert Glanvill’s “Philosophical Considerations Touching the Being of Witches and Witchcraft” (1666), addressed to Robert Hunt, a Justice of the Peace active from the 1650s against witches in Somerset (where Glanvill had his living at Frome)” which underwent several modifications (including the title). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Glanvill#Th...

Pepys retained a copy of *Sadducismus Triumphatus: Or, full and plain Evidence concerning Witches and Apparitions.* (1681) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saducismus_Triumph...
