The Long-Lost Friend: A 19th Century American Grimoire by John George Hohman

The Long-Lost Friend is a complete and annotated edition of a famous early American book of magical folk-cures and charms, intended to treat a variety of ailments in a time of isolated homesteads and a scarcity of modern medicine. The book includes incantations against common illnesses, potions to ward off mosquitos, spells to make your horse more obedient, and remedies for baldness.
