The Victorian era is renowned for its fascination with the superstitious and the spiritual; the theatrics of the magician, the fortune-teller and the seance astounded nineteenth-century audiences. This illustrated book, first published in 1900, offers a layman's guide to "matters magical and mysterious", including how to interpret dreams, omens of good and evil, palm-reading, using ouija boards and identifying witches.
