I'm not sure if this is the place to post this, but here goes. I was going through some boxes in my basement and I came across my set of casting stones. If memory serves me correctly, there was a book that went with them. Can anyone help me obtaining either the book, or the information contained in the book.
Thank you.

Rune stones? Look up "runes."

The Witches' Stones work on a completely different system than runes.

Yes, there was a booklet that came with them. But you can find the essential information in MAGICK. Carl made up the stones and elaborated (with permission) on the work by the same name that Richard Webster published in MAGICK.

Duh, next time I will read the title of the thread! Smile

That sometimes saves a bit of embarrassment.

The witches runes were initially published in a book by a practising witch. the name of the book eludes me at the moment. I do recall her husband was a magician, she does not mention this in her book. plus she was initiated by the old rascal himself. the book was published I think around the sixties, I could be wrong, I remember the cover and it is on this I am guessing the date of publication.

Perehaps you are thinking about Myriam Ruthchild who was married to the late Lee Jacobs at one time. Brother Shadow's stones are a whole different set. Beautiful, by the way. Regretably Carl has no computer access but he lives in East Windsorm, New Jersey and may have a listed phone number. He might have a set of instructions that he would sell you. Couldn't hurt.
I am the fakir, you....

Actually, they were published in Patricia Crowther's "Lid off the Cauldron". I don't own this myself, but once found a web page describing the Witches Runes.

Kardor is correct, these are a beautifully hand-made set of casting stones.

Lid off the cauldron it is Patricia Crowther was the wife of Arnold Crowther, I used to own it, Lid off the Cauldron that is. the witches runes she describes are those described by Richard Webster. I used to make them and sell them locally.
