Place of Magic in the Intellectual History of Europe (Columbia University Studies in the Social Sciences)

Place of Magic in the Intellectual History of Europe - Lynn Thorndike Highly readable and engaging, which is shocking considering it's a grad student's doctoral dissertation from 1905. I only wish it extended, temporally speaking, beyond the Roman Empire, as it would have been even more entertaining than it already was to read the author continue to hurl his stinging criticisms at deluded medieval pseudoscientists.
