Spell Book of the Good Witch of Pendle
Reliable Magic for success in all Cicumstances
Many people who practised magic compiled their own notebooks of spells and charms. Although no book of magic associated with the Pendle witches has survived, this is an imagining of what a book written by Jennet Device might have been like.
The spells are based on authentic records, but are of course for entertainment only, as a reflection of our ancestors’ traditional beliefs. For more information about their sources and the history of folk magic, see my book ‘Wicked Enchantments: A History of the Pendle Witches and their Magic’ (Palatine Books, 2010)
