WICCAN ROOTS: Gerald Gardner and the Modern Witchcraft Revival.
UK: Capall-Bann, 2001. Quality trade paper; A FINE COPY. This book reveals a remarkable picture of the revival of witchcraft in England during the 1930s and 40s. Through years of research, the author has pieced together the story of how retired civil servant, Gerald Gardner, became involved in the worlds of naturism and folklore, which led him to discover a strange theatre run by an esoteric magical group known as the Crotona Fellowship. Here he made contact with a family of hereditary witches, whom the author has been able to identify, whose lineage dates back to Napoleonic times. 8vo. (Item ID: 17067)
