witches of New York: a faithful revelation and exposition of the doings
of all the principal astrologists, sorceresses, prophets, clairvoyants,
witches, planet readers, and other votaries of the black art in the city
of New York Philadelphia: T.B. Peterson and Bros., Doesticks, Q. K. Philander,
c1858, 420 pgs.
The Witches of New York exert an influence too powerful and too wide-spread
to be treated with such light regard as has been too long manifested by
the community they have swindled for so many years; and it is to be desired
that the day may come when they will be no longer classed with harmless
mounte-banks, but with dangerous criminals.
People, curious in advertisements, have often read the "Astrological" announcements
of the newspapers, and-have turned up their critical noses at the ungrammatical
style thereof and indulged the while in a sort of innocent wonder as to
whether these transparent nets ever catch any gulls. These matterof fact
individuals have no doubt often queried in a vague, purposeless way, if
there really can in enlightened New York any considerable number of persons
who have faith in charms and love-powders, and who put their trust in the
a pack of greasy playing-cards. It may open the eyes of these innocent
querists to the popularity of modern witchcraft to learn that the nineteen
she-prophets who adertise in the daily journals of this city are visited
every week by to average of sixteen hundred people or at the rate of more
than a dozen customers a day for each one.

Bit about the CDs
These Cds offer the home researcher the opportunity to own resources, at
a reasonable price, which are usually only available in regional history
libraries or unavailable at all due to their fragile or deteriorating condition.
Each CD-ROM contains actual page images from the original books. They are
produced by scanning the original texts making them not only excellent
resources but archival copies available for future generations. The age
of most of these text make them unreadable under normal conditions as well
as very expensive to own due to their limited distribution.
Unless stated otherwise they are not text searchable. They contain an extensive
bookmark feature that makes it very easy to find the pages you want.
Additionally adobe now offers, on the PC version, a feature called the
"paper catcher". It will convert about 98% (according to adobe) of
all pdf images into searchable text. It uses a process called OCR
(Optical Character Recognition) which "reads" the image and converts it
into text. With this new feature you can convert individual pdf files to
a searchable text. For further information please contact adobe at
