First off relax ... I myself have a copy of the very book you mention and it was (maybe still is as the company still exists), published by
'Finbarr'. I paid around £12 for my copy about 18yrs ago.
Finbarr is a great little mail order company that sells a wide range of occult books ... some useful little guide books for the novice (I have a
couple that I still refer to from time to time and I've been a practicing 'solitary' for 20 + years).
Equally they sell many books that are erm ... well, lets just say 'not so good' ... very commercial (or should I say comical) !
Here's the address ... if any of you are interested get in touch with them and ask them to send you their mailing list.
Finbarr (BC), Folkstone CT20 2QQ (UK)
The book in question is a bit deep for beginners (some of the rituals require certain items that have to be foraged for or brought from specialized
occult shops). Having said that there is a great section about 'Talismanic Magick' ... I have used several of these with excellent results.
One thing I do remember about this book is that it comes with a warning / request from the author ... 'never allow anyone to use your copy' ... so
the guy who gave it to you was a bit naughty !
However, if you really have no experience in 'the craft', but would like to learn, I'd suggest you start with another book stocked by Finbarr
'Candle Burning Rituals' ... a new guide to an ancient art.
I still own a copy of this, it's simple to follow ... there are candle rituals for all occasions ... and they DO work. Once you become more adept and
confident you can make-up your own. I recommended this book to a friend of mine and she sent for a copy just a few weeks ago so I know they still
stock it ... cost her £6.95 ($14.99).
Always remember the witches lore when practicing magickal rites;
'If it harm none so mote it be'
