About this Item

NEW UK HARDBACK. LIMITED Ed. #101/231. Full Japanese bookcloth with gilt toad device, art paper endsheets. NO DJ, as Published. NO remainder mark. A scholarly essay by Andrew Chumbley concerning the obscure ritual of obtaining the witches' amulet known as the Toad-bone. A tenet of rural folk magicians and secret societies such as the Society of the Horseman's Word, the exacting ritual of killing a toad to obtain the bone of power has been documented in various forms and cultural milieus for two millennia, though its origin is likely far older. Focusing on extant forms in Britain and Europe, Chumbley traces the metamorphosis of the toad-bone amulet from its beginning as a talisman for controlling animals to its ultimate manifestation as a conduit of diabolic power of the 'Toad-Witch.' | SHIPS AIRMAIL INTERNATIONALLY!.
