    This big book is a large-format compendium of scans -- of a complete, hand-written Book of Shadows -- from a variant of the Alexandrian Craft called "Boucca Wicca". This is the best format for publishing a Book of Shadows, and it is fortunate that this information has been made available for those who need it. The scans are surprising clear, and the handwriting is completely legible. Sometimes the author provides a printed transcript of a word or two, over the scan, but even in those cases the scan is sufficiently legible and the transcript is unnecessary. Chapter titles at the top of the page, and a table of contents with page numbers (also handwritten and scanned), make it easy to navigate through this large book. Unlike pure Gardnerian Wicca and Conservative Evangelicalism, Boucca Wicca isn't restricted to heterosexuals only. This is a needed advance over the traditional Craft. Human sexuality is understood immensely better today, than when the Gardnerian Book of Shadows... More > was created. While Boucca Wicca requires the traditional opposite-polarity, the guidelines have been modernized to accommodate both heterosexuals and non-heterosexuals. A masculine-natured man or woman, can choose to work with a feminine-natured person of the same gender. Hermaphrodites can work with anyone. The book's foreword explains that Boucca Wicca is "a mixture of Sussex Craft and Alexandrian Witchcraft", and that some of the contents of this Book of Shadows are rare and "unlikely to be found much elsewhere". Also, "Some of the materials in this BOS are either dissimilar to, or not found within the usual published versions of the various Alexandrian Book of Shadows". It explains that "Boucca" comes from a word meaning "Earth Spirit". For those whose mystic interests extend further than Alexandrian Wicca, the author's foreword explains that Boucca Wicca is practiced by an Outer Order of the Et Custosi Tutelae, and that "From this coven work, candidates showing interest {in) the Hermetic Mysteries are invited to formally continue within the Et Custosi Tutelae." Et Custosi Tutelae, also known as The Guardians, is an order of ceremonial magicians who use the magical language of the Qabalah.< Less

    The book begins with a detailed history of how Boucca Wicca came to New Zealand and its historical ties to Alexandrian Witchcraft. This alone makes this work of impertinence to anyone interested in the History of modern witchcraft and especial the traditional of Alexandrian Witchcraft. This is only one of many important elements of this book. Unlike many other Book of Shadows published today, this work is a true Book of Shadows being handwritten by the author. Because it is handwritten, in my option it carries with it a connection to the author and the Boucca Wicca tradition. I feel this book would be of great help to anyone interested in Wicca and Witchcraft. Anyone wanting to make their own Book of Shadows would find this book an aid in doing so.
