Crone's Book of Magical Words (previously published as The
Crone's Book of Words) by Valerie Worth is the book you've been
waiting for In its pages are over 125 spells, incantations, and

in this book. Do you need something to help you lose weight or have
longevity? You'll find them here. Or perhaps you want to pass
through a locked door. It's all in this book.
Even if you don't know a thing about magic, you can use this
book. The spells are easy, poetic, and evocative. For example, to
cure a wart the instructions are: "Stamp within a silver cup

Let it draw the juices up; Twenty times upon one day, brush them
over the excrescence; Under sunlight dry the essence--Soon the wart
must shrink away."
The range in this book is phenomenal. You'll find a simple
fertility charm and a way to conjure with smoke. You'll read about
how to bring rain and how to stop rain from falling. You'll learn
how to tell fortunes with sand or with tea leaves. This is more
than just a book about magic, it is a folklorist's bonanza.

disposition, if you want to turn hair long and golden or discover
tree spirits, this is the book you must have. Whether you have been
doing magic for a long time or are a beginner, this book is a
