Overview

Curious readers can look up the magical tools and spells of Harry Potter's world in this volume, uncovering a wealth of entertaining information about the historical precedents for J. K. Rowling's stories.

Included are the origins of magic wands, love potions, books of spells, and invisibility cloaks, as well as descriptions of how to read tea leaves, who the real Merlin was, and how to get rid of pesky goblins.
