It's no lie, we still get a thrill when one of our books comes back from the printers. So chuffed with our edition of Flaming Youth by Warner Fabian originally published in 1922 still sizzles!
So says the dust jacket: "A startling exposé of ultra-modern society to which the author didn’t dare sign his right name!
It was her first Red kiss; her lips burned, and she shrank back frightened, yet with a strange thrill. Her first step—in the gay, butterfly society set which she had just entered—and one that led to more kisses in a crowd that obeyed no conventions. A book every girl should read and see as a warning against the pitfalls that beset her in in the world of today."

The perfect valentine's gift for any witch, historian or midnight eccentric who's wiling away of these lock down hours is in need of a life. First published in 1889 there is nary a mention of Hogwarts or that terrifying talking hat.
The journalist and author W. H. Davenport Adams (1828–91) established a reputation for himself as a popular science writer, translator and lexicographer. He also wrote several children's books. In this 1889 work, Adams gives a general introduction to alchemy in Europe and traces the development of magic and alchemy in England from the fourteenth century onwards. Initially the disciplines were persecuted by the Church and met with 'the prejudice of the vulgar', languishing throughout the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. In Book 1 Adams portrays the English 'magicians' Roger Bacon, whom he considers to have been ahead of his contemporaries; John Dee and William Lilly, astrologists of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, respectively; and the English Rosicrucians. Book 2 is a historical account of witchcraft in England and Scotland, from the middle ages to the witch trials of the seventeenth century, and includes a chapter on witchcraft in literature.
