Read full description of the books:



This is an engaging compendium of British folktales and legends, drawing on a wide range of literary reminiscences, antiquarian studies, and medieval chronicles. The material is arranged by location, with each chapter representing a particular region, but many of the entries are actually short essays that explore a particular theme. The author guides the reader through the various sources (descriptions of which are given at the back of the book), often quoting at length, but the scholarship is worn lightly and is tempered with irony. For instance:
Walter Gale, a Sussex schoolmaster, tells us that in 1749 could be seen at Mayfield a pair of pincers which the inhabitants said were the very ones Dunstan used to ‘lead the Devil by the nose’. These are perhaps the same tongs found with other metalwork during the restoration of the Old Palace during the 1860s and still preserved at Mayfield. Let us disregard sceptics who say they were not made before the thirteenth century.
