This vintage book contains the memoirs of Duncan Campbell, with chapters on such subjects as witchcraft, genii, apparitions, omens, second sight, and more. Duncan Campbell (1680 - 1730) was a deaf Scottish man and popular London soothsayer. As well as fortune-telling, he began selling seemingly miraculous medicines in 1726, including Pulvis Miraculosus. Campbell died after a severe illness in 1730. Contents include: Of Fortune-telling in General, On my Enemies, Some Convincing Proofs that I always preferred the Interest of my Consulters to my Own, On Witchcraft, On the various Deceptions endeavoured to be put on Me, On Omens: Which are to be depended on, and which not, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition designed for a modern audience. First published in 1732.
