108 pp, 8vo (8 1/16" H), soft cover. ISBN 0947992065 "This unusual and fascinating book includes stories of premonitions, omens, magic books, strange rites, wakes, ghosts and exorcisms. Many of the stories are based on events which took place, in cluding personal experiences. Other stories are second hand or further removed, and the storytellers have given them an archaic and legendary quality. Many of the beliefs and customs described in this book once existed in identical or an a l o g o u s f o rm in Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Cornwall and the Isle of Man, but the Celtic cult of the dead survived into modern times in its most complete form in Armorican Brittany. Anatole Le Braz assembled a vast collection of this materia l on t he s ub je c t in to a logical and coherent whole entitled 'La Legende de la Mort....' In making an abridged translation, Dr Bryce has avoided much of the repetition that occurred inthe original work."

Their natural curiosity and great common sense lead the two children to discover a strange secret passage running beneath their castle home; a myste ri ou s l ik en es s be tween someone long gone from Gale Island and someone recently installed there; and many other seemingly unconnected mysteries....Perhaps the strangest feature is the series of metal discs which Grizelda finds as the hunt pro gre sse s and wh ich sh e lea rns to interpret as a progress report of her rivals!"

SHAKER COMMUNITIES, SHAKER LIVES., Brewer, Priscilla J.
113 Brewer, Priscilla J. SHAKER COMMUNITIES, SHAKER LIVES.
Hanover, NH University Press of New England 1986 0874513626 / 9780874513622 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good 
273 pp, large 8vo (89 1/4" H). B&w photographs, tables. "Athough we know much about Shaker furniture, dance, textiles, and various artifacts, few books tell us about the Shakers as real people and the inner social workings of their sect. Who were the Shakers? What were their social, economic, and religious backgrounds? Why did they join this celibate, communal sect, and why did some leave while others stayed? What did they think of life inside the communities and the rapidly changing world outside? And, perhaps most important, when and why did the sect begin to decline, and how did Believers adjust to this decline? These are some of the questions Priscilla Brewer addresses in this engaging social history. Her highly readable general introduction to the Shakers challenges basic assumptions about the timing and reasons for the group's decline. Brewer studies the Shaker movement from its founding in 1774 to its last major public statement in 1904, restricting her work to the eleven Shaker communities in eastern New York and New England. (She) provides an inside look at Shaker life by recounting the group's social organization, the occupational roles of its members, the composition of its communities, and the operation of the Shaker hierarchy. Far from being a dry, sociological study, this book is filled with anecdotes and revealing stories related by the Shakers through the many writings they left behind." Minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, tiny foxing mark on fore-edge of text block. Dust jacket has minor edge wear and light edge wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, slight fading to spine color.
