An excellent introducion to the magic of England's land and history, aimed at the general reader.English authors such as J.R.R.Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Terry Pratchett, and J.K.Rowling, dominate the world of magic in fiction, but from the earliest times, England has also been home to practitioners of the magical arts. The Book of English Magic explores this hidden story, and along the way readers are offered a rich menu of magical things to do and places to visit. The bookopens at Treadwell's bookshop and features two interviews with the founder, Christina Oakley Harrington.
