Journal of the British Society of Dowsers (6 issues 1979-1883)
2 Journal of the British Society of Dowsers (6 issues 1979-1883)
Ashford Kent, England British Society of Dowsers 198 Soft Cover Very Good 8vo - over 7 
These little magazines are great fun to read whether you believe in dowsing, or you don't. They're all clean and tightly bound and there are no labels. Issues are random from 1979 to 1983. One issue shows foxing to the first two pages (see last photo) caused by a catalog of books available in the Dowser Society Bookshop. The catalog almost makes it worth the defect -- no, I think it actually does! :-) The magazines measures 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and have around 47 pages each. Here's a sample of topics: the use of numbers in magic and healing, dowsing and the healing art, dowsing in everyday life, reflexology, what makes a good dowser, intuition and dowsing, wells and well drilling, proxy dowsing, dowsing for Roman roads, weather prediction by dowsing, practice for water dowsing, the Lost Cross of Waltham Abbey, Orthomolecular Nutrition, cradle charms, change of body weight during water divining, the use of the pendulum and more.
