"A Cunning Man's Grimoire" explores the practices and traditions of the Cunning Folk, who were folk magicians and healers in medieval and early modern Europe. The book delves into the historical context, rituals, spells, charms, and practical techniques used by Cunning Folk for various purposes, including healing, divination, protection, and magical workings.

The Cunning Folk were known for their pragmatic approach to magic and their use of folk remedies, charms, and incantations to help their communities. "A Cunning Man's Grimoire" provides a wealth of information, drawing from historical sources, grimoires, and folklore, to offer insights into the Cunning Craft and its practical applications.

If you are interested in the practices and lore of the Cunning Folk, "A Cunning Man's Grimoire" is a recommended resource to explore their magical traditions.

From Dr. Stephen Skinner and the Golden Hoard Press comes a historical grimoire that features a fascinating blend of high magic and local village magic. Originally a handbook for a working sorcerer, this book includes a wealth of magical workings in addition to a treasure trove of critical astrological information, including a unique set of astrological tables that are generally absent from other grimoires. Going beyond the planetary days and hours, A Cunning Man's Grimoire reveals detailed aspects of timing and magical operations connected with the 28 Mansions of the Moon and image magic, which rarely appear in Solomonic grimoires. This practical manual of magic is strongly influence by Arabic and Indian roots, placing it at the crossroads of several powerful magical streams.
