Illustrated with incantations, specimens of medical magic, anecdotes, tales. This work was published when the author was nearly seventy years of age. It represents twenty years’ collecting of spells, customs, ceremonies, superstitions, fetishes, exorcisms, incantations and usages gathered from living sources throughout America, Europe and the East, as well as from the works of earlier writers, all among the Gypsies, as regards to fortune telling, witch doctoring, love philtering and other sorcery. It is illustrated by many anecdotes and instances, taken either from the works as yet very little known to the English reader, or from personal experiences.

by Charles Godfrey Leland, President of the American Folk Lore Society and author of ‘Aradia, Gospel of the Witches’ the book that inspired Gardner to kick start the current re-emergence of Witchcraft & Paganism.
