Here shall be told the secrets of a crone, greatly skilled in the ways of mysterious charms, chanting spells and ancient incantations, spiritous philtres and elixirs, simmering brews of fresh-plucked herbs, fair amulets and magical rings, and all arts of the wise.
Your hands may shape the form of magic needful to your wants out of a sumptuous array of earthly substances. Is your wish to inspire passion? Inscribe mystic words of power on a talisman portraying the sun in flames. Need you a charm to win the moon’s aid for a secret purpose?

When you must drive away a strong evil, a red-rusted iron nail struck thrice on a dark night will ward you well from baneful influences and emanations.
Thrice a dozen charms and twelves ceremonies for all seasons of the moon will guide you into the ways of Great Wisdom. Partake of the pleasures and virtues in these works daily, that they shall enlighten the hands as readily as the spirit.
