The Standard Book of Spells

The Standard Book of Spells is a multi-volume reference work used as a textbook at Hogwarts. The series is divided into “Grades,” with each successive grade containing more difficult and complex spells. The series was written by Miranda Goshawk in the 1900s, probably based on the seminal work The Book of Spells, written by her ancestor, also named Miranda Goshawk.
