A History of Magic
A History of Magic was a book written by Bathilda Bagshot, one of the most eminent magical historians, covering the history of the wizarding world up to the end of the 19th century. It was first published in 1947 by Little Red Books. A second edition was released by M. L. Books at an unknown date.
It was a required text for all Hogwarts students from the first year onward for the History of Magic class taught by Professor Binns. A copy of this book cost two Galleons at Flourish and Blotts.
