Wonderful three volume book donation

We received a lovely email at the end of last year, here is what it said:

Hi there, 

I’ve recently published a three volume series of books revolving around the 1665 edition of Reginald Scot’s “Discoverie of Witchcraft”.  I like and appreciate what the Museum does, so I’ve placed an order for a hardcover copy of the set to be sent to you, which should arrive in January. 
 
The volumes center on the anonymous additions made to the 1665 edition, with Volume 1 being my analysis of it, Volume 2 containing the text itself as well as related texts from Scot’s original Discoverie, and Volume 3 containing reprints of texts from Agrippa and others that I felt would help in understanding the material. 
 
Anyways, a library accessible to researchers would be a great place for the books to live. 
 
Best wishes, 
 
John S. Madziarczyk

We were delighted to received this impressive three volume book set the other day.  It has now been catalogued and will be available in the library for researchers to use.  Thanks John!
