Where Witchcraft Lives book launch

Where Witchcraft Lives is one of the most sought-after and rarest books on Wicca.

Written in 1962 by Doreen Valiente, who created much of the Gardnerian Book of Shadows, the original edition was limited to 1,275 copies because Doreen was a new author. Copies of that first edition hardbackare currently selling for around £750 on Amazonand have reached higher prices on eBay.

Now, the Centre for Pagan Studies has printed a new limited edition of 1,000 hardback copies of the book through publisher Whyte Tracks. This also includes some extra photographs, many as a result of collaboration of Brighton Museum and the Sussex Archaeology Society, and a new front cover design.

The limited edition will be launched at the Day For Gerald Gardner, 12 September 2010, at Conway Hall, in London, which is organised by the Centre for Pagan Studies.

You can order copies of the new edition from the publisher Whyte Tracks via its website at

This book includes a secret page and also pictures kindly provided by Sussex Archaeological society and Brighton Museum where Doreen spent many a happy day in her research. Ronald Hutton has made a lovely introduction to the book. It is a little gem.
