  5. Is this “New Pagans’ Handbook” from the famous “Regency BoS” ?

    Yes, I suppose it could be termed the Regency’s ‘Book of Shadows’, though I never heard Chalky call it that. I think ‘Book of Shadows’ is really a Gardnerian term.

    But these are the rituals that were used by the Regency, in the form in which Ron White prepared them for publication in the mid-1980s (though the text has stayed in manuscript until now).
