In 1820, folk healer Johann Georg Hohman published a book in German. Continuously in print since that first publication, The Long- Lost Friend—filled with tokens, spells, cures and more—is a milestone in magical history.

• Original German text published for the first time in over a century
• English translation featuring extensive, revealing, and original notes
