GERALD GARDNER AND THE CAULDRON OF INSPIRATION.
UK: Capall-Bann, 2004. Quality trade paper edition; A FINE COPY. From the author of the highly acclaimed "Wiccan Roots", this book tells the story of how retired civil servant, Gerald Gardner (1884-1964) discovered a witch coven in the New Forest in the late 1930s. It contains new material in its attempt to chronicle the origins of the modern witchcraft revival. It tells of newly-discovered members of the coven who practiced herbal magic, including the author of girls' school stories crammed full of pagan imagery, and the true matriarch of the coven - a ritual magician whose sword is still used in witch rituals.
