The practices and rituals herein date upto and beyond the era of Dr. John Fian's demise at the hands of the Inquisitors and King James VI, in 1591. Robin Artisan, illuminates a complete system of Old Tradition Witchcrafte. Book One is Stone Magick. The primary foundation of Earth Magick, the Four Elements and the Seasons of the Sun and Moon, are elaborated on. Herein is a hands-on grimoire for the making of the ritual tools, starting with the tools for cutting stone, the cutting of the stones, the consecrations and blessings, and the Calling of the stones. The additional key of the witches' Rune alphabet is present. Book Two is The Guild Book. This work unveils the survival mechanism put into place by a persecuted people to survive the Holy Inquisition. Herein are the Laws, the Initiation, the Witches' Ring, the Grand Sabbat, the Old Gods, and the Herb Burnings. Dr. Fian's Spell Book, being Book Three, delineates the ritual technical details of the Witch Work, divination by playing cards, dice and scrying. In addition, Familiar Spirits, Thread and String Charms, Poppets, a Cauldron Spell and sundry curses & bindings. Indeed, such charming little ditties as love and lust spells, how to blight a neighbor's crops, how to avoid an unwanted love, and weather spells. Appended is a facsimile reprint of The Damnable Life & Death of Dr. Fian, as published in 1591. A few natural imperfections to leather otherwise a lovely bright Fine copy. Item #62691
