Here is the most complete self-study course in modern Wicca available, written by the person who first went public with "The Old Religion" in the United States. For group or solitary use, it includes rituals; exercises for developing psychic talents; information on all major "sects" of the Craft; sections on tools, beliefs, dreams, meditations, divination, herbal lore, healing, ritual clothing; and much, much more.
Even those who have practiced Wicca for years find useful information in "Buckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft," and many covens are using it as their textbook. Profusely illustrated and full of music and chants.

If you are wanting a study manual on Wicca, are solitary for the moment, and are able to adapt things to suit your own personal belief system, or are looking for a system to follow, then Raymond Bucklands Complete book of Witchcraft will take you from the very beginning in an easy to follow instructional course. Everything is covered. From theory and practice, to making the tools of the craft. His system is that of Seax Wicca, and is biased towards that. Thus my earlier comment on adapting if you feel the need. As usual though, this book is written with the Northern hemisphere as its audience. Us Southerners have to adapt the practice and the seasons to our own part of the world.
