ROBERT KIRK, minister of Aberfoyle in Scotland, as recorded by himself during a period spent in the realm of Faery, including a description of the beings encountered there, as told for his son, Colin, before he vanished from the sight of men, into that place of which he had written and to w hich his heart rightly belonged." "Lovers of faery lore know of Reverend Robert Kirk's 'The Commonwealth of Elves and Faeries', an astonishing description of life in the faery hills and courts of the parish of Aberfoyle, Scotland, where he was minister. But how did Kirk collect the information he included in his book? And what happened to Kirk, who disappeared on 20 June 1692? Here for the first time is Kirk's journal, in which he recorded his visits to the faery realms. In addition, it reveals why he disappeared from this world never to return. This book invites readers to come along on his amazing journey into the Otherworld and gives a wholly original and delightfully engaging account of the faery peoples, their history, magical powers and relations with humankind."
