At Your Service One Hundred Years of The Huddersfield Corporation

A 72 page booklet (not illustrated) published late 60’s.

Slavery in Yorkshire

This new collection of essays based upon a conference at the University of Huddersfield, generously supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, explores the links between Richard Oastlers extraordinarily influential campaign against child labour in Yorkshire after 1830 and the remarkably successful campaign to abolish the transatlantic slave trade led by Yorkshire MP William Wilberforce before 1807. With contributions from D. Colin Dews, Dr John Halstead, Dr John A. Hargreaves, Dr Janette Martin, Professor Edward Royle and Professor James Walvin, it evaluates the distinctively Yorkshire context of both movements and offers a re-assessment of Oastlers contribution to their success. It reveals how Oastlers associations with both evangelical Anglicanism and Nonconformity, especially Methodism, stimulated and sustained his involvement in the ten-hour factory movement and examines the role of the regional press, local grass-roots organisation and Oastlers powerful oratory in helping to secure a successful outcome to the campaign. In a foreword, the Revd Dr Inderjit Bhogal, a leading figure in both the regional and national commemoration of the abolition of the transatlantic slave trade in 2007, commends this wide-ranging historical study with its broad perspective as an important contribution to making us all more informed on the whole theme of slavery today.

Satan’s Disciples – Robert Goldston

Belief in witchcraft and black magic – with its roots in ancient fertility rites, debauchery and human sacrifice – is one of the oldest and strongest superstitions of mankind. In “Satan’s Disciples”, Robert Goldston examines the entire – history of witchcraft and Satanism from the Middle Ages to the present day. Here are described the rites of the Black Mass, the drugs used by witches to arouse lust or inspire visions, the discoveries of the occult sciences. Did black magic really work? It certainly did and still does. Here are the facts about such infamous practitioners of the Black Arts as Gilles de Rais, Cagliostro, Rasputin and the 20th century witches and warlocks who even now perform their depraved ceremonies and blasphemous rites in all the major capitals of the world.

Gelie Duncan – Living Witchcraft (Horwitz, 1970). “Nine tenths of Black Magicians and Witches are phonies …. Most of these people are in it for sexual orgies and dope traffic. We should investigate the powers of the human mind, certainly, but this monkeying around with unknown forces is dangerous for the weak minded.

Witness to Witchcraft

Corgi paperback

£5.00

The “Today” refers to 1954, so you have to read ” The truth about “modern” rites and Cults” with that in mind.

 The first Wicca book, by the father of the Pagan renaissance. Written shortly after the repeal of the English Witch laws in 1954, WITCHCRAFT TODAY offered the world a new religion, Wicca, and captured the imaginations of spiritual seekers everywhere. The author, Gerald Gardner, was writing about a small, secret coven of hereditary Witches, brave people who had hidden their faith for centuries to avoid persecution. His descriptions of their practices and history, their working tools and festivals, impelled a rediscovery of indigenous British religion and, globally, fueled a movement now boasting between 3 and 5 million members, making Wicca one of the fastest growing religions in the United States.

A rare book in this format, hard to find at a reasonable price in any format. This copy has been read, is scuffed but complete and tight, please ask if you need more information. I am offering this book for £10.00.
