Gerald Gardner and the Cauldron of Inspiration: An Investigation into the Sources of Gardnerian Witchcraft.

Somerset, UK: Capall Bann Publishing, 2003. First Edition. Softcover. Philip Heselton (born 1946) is a retired British Conservation Officer, a Wiccan initiate, and a writer on the subjects of Wicca, Paganism and Earth mysteries. He is best known for two books, Wiccan Roots: Gerald Gardner and the Modern Witchcraft Revival and Gerald Gardner and the Cauldron of Inspiration, which gather historical evidence surrounding the New Forest coven and the origins of Gardnerian Wicca. A more critical account of the origins of Wicca was previously provided by Ronald Hutton, but the relationship between the two appears warm. Hutton has written in the foreword to Gerald Gardner and the Cauldron of Inspiration: "Philip Heselton is the most interesting, valuable and enjoyable author who has yet written on what is becoming one of the greatest riddles in the history of modern religion: the origins of pagan witchcraft". Formerly owned by Francis Cameron. Like new. Lower bent corner, minimal creasing, else tight, bright and unmarred. Like new. 438pp + illus., author inscription on front flyleaf to former owner. Item #11107
