Originally published in London in the early 1900s, this
scarce early work on Witchcraft is both expensive and hard to find in its first
edition. Obscure Books Press have now republished it, using the original text
and artwork. The old craft of the witches was a close order. Its members were
sworn to secrecy. Although some records were kept, very few of these still
exist today. In early ecclesiastic and in medieval literature, however,
references to witchcraft are numerous. This book endeavors to set out in an
interesting manner the story of the craft from earliest times.
The book's three hundred and twenty pages contain fourteen
- Witchcraft: A Primitive Cult.
- Initiation and Ceremony.
- Spells, The Evil Eye, and Possession.
- Practical Witchcraft.
- Witchcraft on the
- Werewolves and
. - Blood and Fire in England.
- Demons and Mascots.
- Witch Hunting
- A Typical English Witch Trial.
- Witchcraft in America.
- Witchcraft Phantasmagoria.
- A Typical Witch
The Last Phase. This book will prove a fascinating read for
anyone interested in the occult arts, and will provide much information to
historians of this hither to arcane subject. I Would like to recommend this
lovely book to all those who are interested in the art of occultism.
