Description

First published in 1891, Gypsy Sorcery & Fortune Telling presents a unique and fascinating collection of gypsy witchcraft, folklore, charms, spells, cures, and divination and is profusely illustrated with the author’s own evocative drawings. One of the witchcraft revival’s most influential figures, American folklorist Charles Godfrey Leland, who would become the founding president of the Gypsy Lore Society, sought out the gypsies of England; befriending them, learning their language and immersing himself in their beliefs, stories and practices.
