How To Hex Books

One of the most famous and most durable of the books on Witchcraft is John George Hohman's PowWows or Long Lost Friend, usually called by the latter, the ending of the Preface stating "Given at Rosenthal, near Reading, Berks County. Penn., on the 31st day of July, in the year of our Lord, 1819, John George Hohman, Author and original publisher of this book."

There are nearly two hundred "Arts and Remedies" listed on the index Page. Both the Frontispiece and the last page contain this pronouncement: "Whoever carries this book with him, is safe from all his enemies, visible or invisible; and whoever has this book with him cannot die without the holy corpse of Jesus Christ, nor drowned in any water, nor bum up in any fire, nor can any unjust sentence be passed upon him. So help me." This is followed by one large cross with two smaller ones along each side of it.

Among some of the Arts and Remedies are:

At the time of this writing there was published a book simply called HEX which details the use of witchcraft today in many parts of Pennsylvania. It is a complete account of a famous court case and murder trial based on witchcraft. The court forbade the admission of this into the trial. The crux of the case was suppressed. Yet the murder itself was that of a witch who had hexed her murderer. One of the things the author discovered was the popularity of the book Long Lost Friend by many people in Pennsylvania, including Pennsylvania Dutch, various sects and individuals, who revere it as some kind of black magic bible.
