Description
A pamphlet printed in London in 1591 and likely written by James Carmichael who later advised King James VI on the writing of his book Daemonologie. It describes the infamous North Berwick witch trials in Scotland and the confessions given before the King. It was subsequently published in Daemonolgie by King James in 1597.

Summary
An account of the alleged witches Agnes Sampson, known as the Wise Wife of Keith, and the principal accuser Geillis Duncan and described the death of Archibald Douglas, 8th Earl of Angus, who was said to have been bewitched to death in a disease so strange his physician could find no cure or remedy. The pamphlet details the initial events leading up to the trials, how each of the suspected witches were found out and captured, leading to the eventual apprehension of Dr. John Fian who was declared a notable sorcerer.

Excerpt
Item, the said Agnis Tompson confessed that the Diuell being then at North Barrick Kerke attending their comming in the habit or likenes of a man, and seeing that they tarried ouer-long, he at their comming enioyned them all to a pennance, which was, that they should kisse his Buttockes, in signe of duetye to him: which being put ouer the Pulpit barre, euerye one did as he had enioyned them: and hauing made his vngodly exhortations, wherein he did greatlye enveighe against the King of Scotlond, he receiued their oathes for their good and true seruice towards him, and departed: which doone, they returned to Sea, and so home againe.
