She Waves Her Hand to the Attendant Raven, & with a Rush that Sends a Spirtle of Bright Sparks up from the Embers, She Is Away—up the Chimney through the Overhanging Branches, through the Ragged Clouds, & far on Her Journey under the Stars (1908)

Oliver Madox Hueffer, The Book of Witches, (London: Eveliegh Nash, 1908): frontispiece.

[Curator's note; this is from a poor quality scan and normally it would not have been collected here, but I found the image so compelling even with the degradationor perhaps because of itthat I did what I could to soften the worst of compression noise and went forward.]
