The Witchcraft Research Association's 'Pentagram'
In 1964 Doreen Valiente was involved in the creation of the Witchcraft Research Association.

To this end, they produced a small publication called Pentagram which is available for download below.

Here is the 'Earth Religion News' reprint of the original which I understand is a slightly abridged version of the original. Below it can be found the cover and first two pages from the second edition of the original.
