Description
Tappings on tables, questionable curatives, old wives' tales, whispers from beyond the grave—the Victorians were fascinated by superstitions and the supernatural. This little book, originally published in 1899, was just the sort of guide they might have turned to when they needed to identify a witch, interpret an omen or a dream, seek a nature cure, or divine someone's future. Unintentionally hilarious today, it offers unique insight into the minds of our ancestors, and is splendidly illustrated with engraved drawings throughout.

"This compact 'reference' book is perfect for toting, so you can always have mystical lifehacks like 'Do not cut your nails on Sunday!' at the ready.... It includes superstitions, charms, and supernatural counsel, including dream interpretation, palm reading, and some handy advice on communicating with the dead."—Mental Floss
