Published in 1959, it’s clearly outdated now but it helps a lot to understand where Wicca comes from, and what modern Western witchcraft is and is not.
Charge of The Goddess by The Doreen Valiente Foundation
A Collection of poems by Doreen Valiente, the Mother of Modern Wicca. Useful for ideas to incorporate in your craft, prayers, art.
The Malleus Maleficarum by James Sprenger and Henry Kramer
First published in 1486, this book describes how to identify witches, try them, and kill them. Interesting if you don’t mind reading tedious little details of the trial process, plus other anti-women archaic ideas.

First published in 1974, this is a personal magickal workbook copied by hand from the time of her initiation into the Craft.
I would definitely recommend checking out Althaea Sebastiani’s new book Paganism for Beginners! I actually did a review of it on my YouTube channel if you want to check it out.
