A 17th-century manuscript penned by a respected magician, folk musician and one of “the cunning men of Essex,” that revealed, among other things, how one “gets a woman to dance naked,” has sold for £22,000.

A thick historic volume of remedies and spells, comprising a staggering 476 pages, shares strikingly practical tips on how to be likeable and make one fall in love with you, lose weight and even estimate if “a sick person shall die.”

Just for instance, to make a woman dance naked, the magician suggested that one pronounce the intriguing spell ala aymal or inscribe them in hot wax, but there is a tiny but crucial nuance, however: the words work only during a full moon.

A bit of dietary recommendation, meanwhile, has it that an overweight man may become “lean again” if he makes himself a “broth of fennel” and drinks it daily for at least a month.

To earn a woman’s love, the author suggested a perfectly rational line of behaviour: a man should make her a broth with pig bones in it and then have a joint meal with her.

“Write her name on parchment and throw into the fire on which you cook a broth of herbs mixed with pig bones and share with the lady,” the manuscript has it.

The so-called “cunning folk” were respected on the British Isles as professional or half-amateurish practitioners of magic, who were active for a vast swathe of time, from the Middle Ages until the early 20th century.

They were believed to be able to use their powers to map criminals, “show” missing persons or even track stolen items.

The item, listed on Toovey’s, of West Sussex, was expected to fetch a few hundred pounds, but ultimately sold for a much bigger sum to a private collector, as it has never been published and due to “a strong interest in the market for items relating to witchcraft,” Charlie Howe, book specialist at Toovey’s told the British edition.

Alexander Zverev stunned world number one Novak Djokovic in straight sets to win the season-ending ATP Finals and earn the biggest victory of his career.




Djokovic, 31, was the heavy favourite to win a sixth finals title but was outclassed 6-4 6-3 by the German.

Third seed Zverev broke Djokovic for a 5-4 lead in the first set and then served three big aces to take the set.

Zverev, 21, continued to dominate in the second set and sealed a memorable victory as Djokovic faltered.

“I’m unbelievable happy, obviously it is the biggest title I have ever won,” said Zverev, who also took home around £2m in prize money.

Zverev lost to the Serb in straight sets in the round-robin stage but, after beating Roger Federer in Saturday’s semi-finals, produced a more confident performance to stop Djokovic equalling Federer’s haul of end-of-season titles.

Zverev missed his first championship point before hitting a sensational backhand down the line for victory, falling to the court in a mixture of disbelief and celebration as Djokovic jumped over the net to congratulate him.

“You definitely played much better than you did the group stage,” Djokovic told Zverev with a laugh. “You deserved to win.”
