<< P.P.S.: Ye olde headache. Or whatever. Perhaps I could use a spell from Bald's Leechbook...any idea where I can get a copy, other than the Bodleian Library? That's the only copy I found, and I only had a day to look at it....there were, like, five cures for elf-shot....it seems to have been reprinted at the request of Winston Churchill, but do they really printone-offs, or would there be others, somewhere? >>
There is an edition plus translation in volume II of
Oswald Cockayne's 'Leechdoms, Wortcunning, and Starcraft of
Early England' (London 1865).
Online at (lousy quality, but still legible):
For a facsimile:
