The encyclopedia of witches witchcraft and wicca
The Encyclopedia of Witches and Witchcraft by Rosemary Ellen GuileyIm a die hard fan of this woman. I dont even care that her books are hella expensive. I really dont. Frankly, I have yet to find another author quite like her. The book is exactly what it sounds like, an encyclopedia of all things witches. Youre not going to find specific spells, rites, etc.-- this is much more about the history of witchcraft than help practicing it. She does cover witch-related events, too, like haunting and such. And the information in this paranormal encyclopedia is organized. Very organized.
I do think she did her absolute best to collect a wealth of material. I think she did a fantastic job. I cant say there is another, more useful book (on the same subject) on my shelves. That being said, the pictures are in black and white, and they arent awe-inspiring.
Otherwise, youll find just about anything your heart desires in this book. That being said, you do have to know HOW to look. Youre not going to find what youre looking for by just skimming through the book--theres too much content for that inane twittery. Youre going to have to actually spend sometime searching the index and reading through various entries to find the exact information youre looking for. Now, I do write witches for the most part, but I cant say that Ive used this book for much more than historical reference material just yet. I do think that has to do with the fact that there is so much witch-related content in here, rather than different types of witches. If it were the latter, I could see myself using this book a little bit more than I actually do.
I did order this one from Amazon, but I ordered it used to help cut the cost down. Either way, like I said, I love this author and would probably follow her supernatural ass to the grave.

This edition provides unparalleled coverage of witchcraft practices around the world spanning different time periods and societies including entries on magic, shamanism, the occult, and wizardry. Now covering Wicca-related material not included in the previous editions as well as updates of contemporary biographies and Wicca material, this encyclopedia is perfect for casual readers and researchers, as well as those fascinated by this spellbinding topic. All content has been expanded considerably, providing updates and new information about the key topics of witchcraft.
