This fascinating work includes information on divination and astrology, lycantrophy and necromancy, and all the diverse varieties of magic and magical practices from the earliest times to the present day.
A Treasury of Witchcraft includes and introduction to Black and White magic; magic techniques, spells, conjurations, and formulas; magic operations such as herb lore, sympathetic magic, wands, and potions; the appearance and habits of witches and warlocks; voodoo; manuals of magic; the history of witchcraft versus the state; and other topics.
Original texts arranged in historical sequence present actual records referring to witchcraft and sorcery as realities together with specific spells, charms, invocations, descriptions and occult practices, a Who’s Who in Demonology, and imperial and state decrees relating to magic activities. Magical practices from Babylon, Greece, Rome, Europe, India, Africa, and many other areas are included. Each section has an interpretative essay with additional notes fully elucidating provocative points.
