Amazon.com review:

"Witchcraft and the supernatural have captured the imagination for thousands of years. In times gone by the simple and credulous had limited ability to deal with phenomena of which they were ignorant. Often, events beyond the normal were taken as evidence of malefic forces at work. In some eras, witchcraft was seen as the cause of many of mankind's ills - from curdled milk to bad luck. Philip Sergeants WITCHES & WARLOCKS is a classic account of the lore and practices of witchcraft and sorcery. It separates the reality of occult practices from the fears of its detractors, laying the truths of this fascinating phenomenon before the readers and providing a superb guide to the spells, salves and Sabbaths of male and female practitioners of the Black Arts. Vividly illustrated with line drawings and wood-cuts, it builds a compelling picture of one of mankind's most ancient fascinations."
