About this Item

1850. Marbled paper covered boards with calf leather spine. 4 1/4 by 7 inches. 80 pp. A later printing of this German language edition of this work, providing many folk remedies, charms and spells for colic, aches, swellings, etc. A few spells are included to be used against thieving, murderers and witchcraft, as well as extinguishing fire without water and a few conjurations, earning the book the status of grimoire. Published openly and very popular among its purchasers, this book was reprinted many times in pulp form during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Hohman was a German immigrant, settling in Pennsylvania in 1802, and earning money by publishing various broadsides and other work, as well as practicing as a healer. (See Davies. Grimoires p 192-94). GOOD condition. General fading and some scuffing to the covers. Heavy scuffing and bumping along the extremities and spine, with the corners rounded. Minor soiling. Ink staining to the rear cover. Interior solid. General fading to the text, with scattered minor moderate to heavy foxing throughout, as well as some staining and soiling. A few pages very browned. Small piece missing from the center fore edge of page 11. A few scattered tears and chips to the page edges throughout. Bookseller Inventory # 008562
