Originally published in the UK in 1973, this important and detailed book describes customs, legends, spells, and beliefs of the Yorkshire area of England.
This first U.S. edition is a facsimile reproduction of the original small book of the region’s lore, its beautiful copper metallic finish cover fitting the occasion.
The foreword to this 35th anniversary collectors edition puts this book in modern perspective, stating, “The small book you are now holding in your hands was an early effort by one of the first publicly announced practitioners to contribute to a fuller picture of the witch, and of witchcraft. The text provides samplings of how witchcraft and folk-magic manifested themselves, over many years, within the borders of Yorkshire.”
