Reader's note

This colourful quirky book is a 1977 edition of The Hamish Hamilton Book of Witches. White witches and black, broomsticks and cats, furtive females round a fire - all these familiar figures from the annals of witchcraft are here, and many others too. For witches are not always evil: Mary Norton's Miss Price from Bedknob and Broomstick has difficulty in learning her spells; and Dorothy Jacob's witches are skilled in healing warts and the like. Jacynth Hope-Simpson's coven of witches has, indeed, a varied membership: Grimm's Rapunzel, Baba Yaga from the forests of Russia, Louisa M. Alcott's theatrical witch from Little Women, Macbeth's 'three weird sisters', the witch of Endor, witches historical, witches poetic, witches African. Humour, horror or magic, there is something for every taste in this bewitching book!
