  Der Lang Verborgene Freund, or The Long-Lost Friend, is perhaps the most influential and well known of all the grimoires to originate in the New World. Originally published in Reading, Pennsylvania, circa 1820, it has become an international bestseller.

Llewellyn is pleased to present the most complete, accurate, and accessible version of this hard-to-find classic book of magic. Edited and annotated by magic scholar Daniel Harms, it features approximately one hundred recipes not available in any version of the text available now. It includes both the German text from 1820 and the English translation of 1856, with notes on variations with Hohman's translations in 1846 and 1863. In addition, the text includes an introduction providing the book's background and position in history, additional charms taken from the pirated 1837 Skippacksville edition, and a set of indices for general purposes, ingredients, and purposes of particular recipes.
