Written in the style of a first person narrative, Unitarian theologian Beard’s study spans from Satan’s portrayal in the Bible and early Gnostic dualism through to comparatively recent times, and culminates in the triumph of God over his satanic majesty, an ending clearly influenced by his staunch Calvinist father’s intense fear of hell and eternal damnation. In spite of this, the discourse is learned, well researched, and often tinged with the dark humour of DeFoe’s study (see item M44I). Beard also includes material on Satan’s connection with magic and witchcraft, together with his place in various medieval heresies. Slight soiling and minor marks to covers in places, spine, joints and very top edge of rear board slightly faded to a deep pink, light cracking to upper joint which remains firm, minor spotting to first few leaves and the odd margin, text tight and remarkably clean overall. With the ownership initials J.K in blue pencil dated 1910 to top of the verso of the front end paper, which although cannot confirmed, may be in the hand of alchemy student Julius Kohn. This first edition is seldom seen on the open market, with most surviving copies confined to various institutional libraries. Rare Book Hub only lists three examples offered for auction in the last 100 years; overall a near very good copy of a rare book £300
