Signed by Author. background of covers illustrated as wood with knots; inscription by the author on pre-title page reads: "To Prof. J. B. C. Grundy I cordially dedicate this copy of a book largely inspired by Her Majesty's French words at Ottawa - Emile Vaillancourt - Outremont, Sep.2. '39"; introduction by T. S. Ewart; illustrated by b/w. photo's; an appeal for Canadian Unity in spite of any differences between language, religion or geographical & regional means of living:- "A belief which is quite common among English-speaking Canadians is that the French Canadian is, if I may use the expression, France-French. whereas he is Canadian French only. He is not anti-British but again he is Canadian and takes, in fact, the same position as do many thousands of English-speaking Canadians - a fact which should be recognized by those who improperly criticise the people of Quebec.

The Rebirth of Witchcraft

Doreen Valiente

Robert Hale Ltd, London, 2007. Reprint. Softcover. As New/No Dust Jacket. Since 1951, when the last of the Witchcraft Acts was repealed, many books have been written about the reappearance of witchcraft and the development of a pagan theology. Churchmen have denounced it. Sociologists have wondered at it. Journalists have penned sensational stories about it. But until the publication of this book, no one had told the real story of it from the inside as frankly as it is told here. Doreen Valiente, one of witchcraft's most widely known figures, was a close friend of the late Gerald Gardner, generally regarded as the founder of present-day witchcraft. Initiated by him and for a time High Priestess of his coven, Doreen Valiente helped him rewrite his seminal 'Book of Shadows'. She records the break with Gardner that split his coven, the controversy surrounding Alex Sanders, 'King of the Witches' and memories of many other witches whom she has known, including the lady called 'Dafo' ...

T. Cook/Midland Temperance Press, Leicester, 1845. First Edition. Hardcover (Half Leather). Poor Condition/No Dust Jacket. Annual Published as a monthly magazine from 1844 to 1846 & gathered as an annual in three volumes of which this is the middle one.
