The Long-Lost Friend
by Daniel Harms

Readers interested in spirituality live in an amazing time. Bookstores, libraries, and the Internet provide information on all manner of traditions, from the most orthodox to those that, a few centuries before, would have ensured a quick trip to the stake. It is hard for us to recall that, even a few decades ago, books on occult topics were quite difficult to come by. One such book that has lived in infamy is Der Lange Verborgene Freund, or "The Long-Lost Friend." Now newly updated, editor Daniel Harms explains its importance–both yesterday and today.

Edited by Daniel Harms

Originally published in 1820 near Reading, Pennsylvania, under the German title Der Lange Verborgene Freund, this text is the work of immigrant Johann George Hohman. A collection of herbal formulas and magical prayers, The Long-Lost Friend draws from the traditional folk magic of Pennsylvania Dutch customs and pow-wow healers.

This is authentic American folk magic at its best—household remedies combined with charms and incantations to cure common ailments and settle rural troubles. The most well-known grimoire of the New World, this work has influenced the practices of hoodoo, Santeria, Paganism, and other faiths. In this, the definitive edition, you’ll find:

• Both the original German text and the 1856 English translation
• More than one hundred additional charms and recipes, taken from the pirated 1837 Skippacksville edition and others
• Extensive notes on the recipes, magic, Pennsylvania Dutch customs, and the origin of many of the charms
• Indices for general purposes and ingredients
• Explanations of the specialized terminology of illnesses

Whether your interest lies in folklore, ethnobotany, magic, witchcraft, or American history, this classic volume is an essential addition to your library.
