Translation of a Different Colour

So that you don’t have to, Your Intrepid Reporter studies frequently the columns of that so-called “Manual for Witch Hunters”, the Malleus Maleficarum — truly, a precious document.

I use the English translation with Introduction & Notes by Montague Summers, which appeared in a 1971 Dover Paperback reprint of the 1928 London first edition. The Reverend (so he calls himself; from wikipedia:

In 1909 he converted to Catholicism and shortly thereafter he began passing himself off as a Catholic priest and styling himself the “Reverend Alphonsus Joseph-Mary Augustus Montague Summers”, even though he was never a member of any Catholic order or diocese. Whether he was ever actually ordained as a priest is a matter of dispute.
