The Witchcraft of
Dame Darrel of York
by Charles Godfrey Leland
Introduction by Professor Robert Mathiesen
368 pages, 8" x 10.5"
Standard hardcover edition ($65.00)
The Witchcraft of Dame Darrel of York purports to be the full account of the Witchcraft practiced in medieval England. In truth,
Dame Darrel was an imaginative recreation of how witchcraft was practiced in medieval England. Based on Leland’s years of
prodigious research, the structure of this work leaves room for readers to create their own practice rooted in tradition,
yet responsive to twentieth century needs and sensibilities.
This beautifully reproduced facsimile of the illuminated manuscript includes a full transcript
of the text. While shedding light on an ancient tradition, it also provides the basis for a modern practice. It will be treasured
by those practicing Pagans, scholars, and anyone fascinated by the legend and lore of England.
In addition to the standard hardcover edition, The Witches' Almanac will publish a deluxe numbered edition with slipcase,
distributed by Weiser Antiquarian, for $85.00, plus
an exclusive full leather bound and slip cased edition available strictly by subscription.
