(c) 1959, Crown Publishers, Inc., New York, N.Y. Old version in excellent condition. Information prior to the Wiccan reconstructionist viewpoint. Great as a reference resource volume.

I love reference books, and this is the holy grail. It has a great bibliography of many a burned books throughout history, illustrations of engravings and paintings related to the subject, and a plethora of other entries. Any horror writer, occultist, or book collector would cherish this definitive work. It is not a book of spells, a book of shadows, or a grimoire. It is and encyclopedia of all things creepy fact and fiction.

Disambiguation notice
Please don't combine this 1959 work by Rossell Hope Robbins with the 1974 work of the same name with an introduction by Hans Holzer. They're very different. The Holzer is compiled of articles from the partwork Man, Myth and Magic.
