Curious readers can look up the magical tools and spells of Harry Potter's world in this volume, uncovering a wealth of entertaining information about the historical precedents for J. K. Rowling's stories. Wands and wizards, boggarts and broomsticks, hippogriffs and herbology, all have astonishing histories rooted in legend, literature, or real life events dating back hundreds or even thousands of years. Included are the origins of magic wands, love potions, books of spells, and invisibility cloaks, as well as descriptions of how to read tea leaves, who the real Merlin was, and how to get rid of pesky goblins. Los millones de lectores han quedado cautivados por toda la magia, los hechizos, y los animales mitológicos que constituyen el sorprendente mundo de Harry Potter pueden averiguar sus orígenes en este tomo entretenido. Este tomo provee respuestas históricas a preguntas como ¿Cómo obtuvo la piedra filosofal su poder? ¿Es posible encontrar un basilisco en la actualidad? ¿Quién llevó la primera capa de invisibilidad? Incluidos son las claves para entender de dónde provienen todos los elementos que J. K. Rowling ha articulado en torno a su famoso personaje: amuletos y escobas voladoras, astrología y cartomancia, duendes excéntricos y búhos sabios.
