108 pp, 8vo (8 1/16" H). "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, including personal experiences. Other stories are secondhand 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 analogous form 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 material on the subject into 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 in the original work." Interior - soft corner crease on first few pages, otherwise clean and tight with no other ownership marks. Exterior - soft corner crease on front cover, minor wear at top of spine.
