Description


John George Hohman -- a Pennsylvania Dutch healer -- compiled and published this book of folk cures in 1820. It contains native remedies; healing spells and prayers; and protective charms, wards, and benedictions. Of historical interest for its depiction of early 19th century American popular magic and ritual, it remains a fascinating look at folk medicine and superstition.
