Devon's Witchcraft, Viewing Devon Series by A. Farquharson-Coe. James Pike Ltd., St. Ives, Cornwall, England. Paperback, 1975 First Edition. In 1691 Richard Baxter published "The Certainty of the World of Spirits" containing references to Devon, a county he considered a potent theatre of witchcraft activity. It is not difficult to understand why witchcraft has always had such a hold on the west. From the earliest unchronicled times, metal ores of one sort or another were mined, the discovery of lodes and commencement of working them being celebrated with magical ritual. Today miners have superstitions with roots in distant days, while erstwhile sensible farmers carry out certain agricultural operations according to occult procedures which have existed from time immemorial, remaining to earn the label of modern magic, science. Devon's white witches used fungi to cure wounds for centuries before the seal of medical approval was set on their treatment with the invention of penicillin. Communities were nearer the natural way of living before industry descended upon them with its new dark age; today even, your average Devonian is but a second or third generation from the land or sea, each with the knowledge and ritual of its own magic. - From introduction ISBN: 085932091X.
