EAST ANGLIAN WITCHES AND WIZARDS. Volume Four of the British Witchcraft Series.
Hercules: Three Hands Press, 2017. Quality trade paper edition; A FINE COPY. Eight illustrations. The fourth volume chronicling the witchcraft traditions of the British Isles is scheduled for late July. This new volume in the Witchcraft of the British Isles series features the craft of East Anglia. Geographically, the region stretches northeast from greater London to the county of Norfolk and the sea. It is one of the richest areas of historical witchcraft and folk magic in England. From the private witch of William the Conqueror to the cunning men and women of the marshes and fens, to the Toad-witches and the appalling deeds of the witch-finders, the book is a treasure of historical information on the actual folk magical practices of East Anglia. Also examined are the spirits of locality, such as Old Shuck, the spectral black dog known to haunt country lanes, and a special chapter on Imps and Familiars. 192 pages. Tall 8vo. (Item ID: X-EWp)
