Like many Protestant Reformers and Puritan divines before him, Jones was fascinated by the occult. Throughout his life he amassed what he believed to be convincing evidence for the existence of good and evil apparitions (including ghosts, demons, fairies, witches, angels, and giants) and of the invisible world.The Appearance of Evil: Apparitions of Spirits in Wales contains the testimonies of many witnesses to supernatural encounters in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Wales, from abductions by fairies, and appearances of ghosts, devils and witches, to poltergeist activity.

The stories here evoke a spiritually dark landscape in which the malevolent dead and damned wander, and present a fascinating insight into how the eighteenth-century visualized the spirit world.This new edition presents Joness narratives in an up-dated and accessible form. John Harvey has collated Joness second book of apparitions, published in 1780, along with the text of an earlier but now lost volume on the same subject, and material from Joness 1779 study of the parish of Aberystwyth.

Together they represent the most comprehensive compilation of Joness relations of apparitions ever before published.
