This is the most famous book of magic written in America. Originally published in 1820 near Reading, Pennsylvania, under the German title Der Lange Verborgene Freund, this is authentic American folk magic at its best – household remedies combined with charms and incantations to cure common ailments and settle rural troubles. This most well-known grimoire of the new world was written by immigrant Johann George Hohman. Edited by Daniel Harms, this edition includes the original German text and the 1856 English translation.
