This book is annotated with a rare biographical sketch of the author, written by Elizabeth Robins Pennell. Mr. Leland has been very industrious in collecting himself the strange lore of "what is really the practical religion of all peasants and poor people, that is, their magical ceremonies and medicine; " and he also sets forth in an interesting manner very much material derived from authorities little known to the common English reader. Fortune-­telling,­witch-­doctoring, love-­philtering, and other kinds of sorcery are very fully illustrated; the volume is, indeed, quite a cyclopedia in its way. Contents: Preface Chapter I - The Origin Of Witchcraft, Shamanism, And Sorcery-­Vindictive And Mischievous Magic Chapter Ii - Charms And Conjurations To Cure The Disorders Of Grown People Hungarian Gypsy Magic Chapter Iii - Gypsy Conjurations And Exorcisms-­The Cure Of Children-­Hungarian Gypsy Spells-­A Curious Old Italian "Secret"-­The Magic Virtue Of Garlic-­A Florentine Incantation Learned . . .

This classic text is one of the few books which claims to be an actual sacred text of traditional witchcraft taken from a group of pagan witches.

In the 20th century, this book was very influential in the development of the Neopagan religion of Wicca.

The author, Charles Godfrey Leland, was an American journalist, folklorist, and of course, an author. The basis of this book is based on material in which he received from a woman known as Maddelena.

On New Years day, 1897 she handed over to him a document in her own handwriting, the Vangel, which is the core of this book. Soon after handing over the Vangel, Maddelena reportedly went missing, and never contacted Leland again.
