    Ariadne Rainbird & David Rankine
    A Course in Progressive Witchcraft for the Solitary Practitioner

    ISBN: 1898307997
    Paperback 320 pages

    This is a book about Progressive Witchcraft which the authors see as being more eclectic and universal than Alexandrian and Gardnerian Wicca. Witchcraft is composed of three main elements — Magic, Mysticism and Religion — each treated in depth, and intergrated in this excellent, practical book. Witchcraft contains elements of Shamanism and this book includes techniques such as dance, breathing techniques and the use of sacred herbs to explore other states of conciousness. Techniques and teaching from many different countries and cultures are integrated and used to great effect, drawn from the courses and teachings carried out by the authors. The book gives a solid grounding in personal magical work, aimed primarily at the sole practitioner, though members of groups will also benefit from the teachings given.

    This book, by an actual member of one of the few surviving witch-covens, gives the correct meaning lying behind the age-old practices and beliefs of the witch-cult.

    Gerald Gardner

    Dr. Gardner shows that in Witchcraft we have the remains of a pre-Christian religion, which has been distorted and mis-represented by its enemies throughout the centuries.

    Much painstaking research has gone into the writing of this book, which must take its place as an important contribution to the whole subject.

It guides you through the meditations, the journeys to the elemental realms and the casting of a magick circle.

    Anna Frankline and Sue Philips

    ISBN: 1861631952
    Paperback 206 pages

    In recent years movies and TV programmes have portrayed modern witches in an exciting way and this has led to a massive increase of interest in witchcraft among young people. Spin off books and so called 'books of spells' have been published, often written by people who know little or nothing about the subject and which have nothing at all to do with real witchcraft and real magic. The line between fact and fantasy is blurred and it is often impossible for the novice to judge truth from fiction. Concerned to set right some of these misconceptions and avert the very real dangers they pose, Real Wicca For Young People has been written by Anna Franklin, a well known Pagan author and Wiccan high priestess, and Sue Phillips, a Wiccan elder and mother of teenage children. This book sets out to give a true picture of witchcraft [the ancient religion of Wicca] to young people, setting out its beliefs, practices and the principles of real magic, as opposed to the film and 'spell book' variety, in a practical and accessible way. The cover picture is on the front of this catalogue.

Although copies of some of these letters have been passed around and broadcast on the Internet over the years, they have become jumbled and as a result all kinds of misinformation has arisen about their origin and authorship.

    The Philosophy of Witchcraft

    Ref: IHO919-9


    Price: 10.95

    Ian Ferguson

    The Witch was counsellor and consoler of man, the genius of the domestic arts, the treasury of knowledge, and the inspiration of belief. The prophet, priest and king of paganism whose territory was the World. This study of Witchcraft in social history goes beyond the boundaries of historical survey and acceptance of the Witch as a victim, to a symbol of the predominant instinct of a 'philosophy of comfort' against which ethics and pure knowledge have striven and are striving today.

    Ref: B710-5


    Price: 9.95

    The origin of the Gardnerian Craft

    W.E. Liddell

    Compiled and edited by Michael Howard

    George Pickingill (1816-1909) was said to be the leader of the witches in Canewdon, Essex, as described in The Dark World of the Witches by folklorist Eric Maple in 1962. In detailed correspondence with The Wiccan and The Cauldron magazines from 1974-1994, E.W. Liddell, under his pen name Lugh, claimed to be a member of the ‘true persuasion’, i.e. the Hereditary Craft. He further claimed that he had relatives in various parts of southern England who were coven leaders and that his own parent coven (in Essex) had been founded by George Pickingill’s grandfather in the 18th century. One of the subjects discussed by Liddell was the origin of the Gardnerian Book of Shadows. It was alleged that Aleister Crowley had helped Gardner draft his BoS and that Crowley had been inducted into the Craft by Pickingill in 1899 or 1900. It was further alleged that Crowley used a technique of ‘magical recall’ to remember the rites of Pickingill’s network of Nine Covens and helped Gardner formulate rituals based on these

    There is considerable interest in the material in the so-called Pickingill Papers and the controversy still rages about their content and significance with regard to the origins of Gardnerian Wicca. This book provides, for the first time, a chance for the complete Pickingill material to be read and examined in toto together with background references and extensive explanatory notes. It also includes new material on the Craft Laws, the New Forest coven, Pickingill’s influence on the Revived Craft and a refutation of the material on Lugh and his basic thesis in Aidan Kelly’s recent book Crafting the Art of Magic.
