This vintage book contains a comprehensive encyclopedia of the folk-lore of Lancashire. The north of England has enjoyed a particularly rich history of folk-lore, having been influenced by the cultures of the Celts, Angles, Teutonic people, Scandinavians, the Normans, and more. This volume is highly recommended for those with an interest in English Folklore, and it would make for a fantastic addition to collections of related literature. Contents include: "Superstitious Beliefs and Practices", "Charms and Spells", "The Devil, Demons, &c", "Divination", "Miscellaneous", "Miracles", "Omens and Predictions", "Superstitions, General and Miscellaneous", "Witches and Witchcraft", "Local Customs and Usages at Various Seasons", "Eating and Drinking Customs", et cetera. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction.
