A pocket-sized illustrated guide to magic’s history, definitions, and uses today from Marian Green, author of A Witch Alone.
Since ancient times, people have collected and used objects with beneficial properties and chanted words to bring about real-world results. In Charms, Amulets, Talismans & Spells, scholar Marian Green explains the difference between these magical objects and sayings, shows you which to use for luck or protection or other benefits, and explores the history of the magic that gives these charms, amulets, talismans, and spells their meaning.
This unique little book unravels the complex web of associations and correspondences which form the backbone of the Western magical arts. Packed with rare illustrations and useful tables, there is no better volume for the modern travelling magician.
