This detailed manual on tea-leaf divination, written by ‘a Highland Seer’, provides advice on the ideal size and shape of cup and the type of tea to use. In The Prisoner of Azkaban, Professor Trelawney told Harry that the presence in his cup of ‘the Grim’, a large dog, signified death. In this book, in contrast, the appearance of a dog towards the top of the cup is said to be a favourable sign, denoting a faithful friend. Shown here: front cover
