British Folk-Talesand Legends
“Katharine Briggs is an editor of such surpassing know-ledge that one suspects that she may have sourcesamong witches, ghosts and fairies. This is one of therichest selection of folk-tales available. It travels fromKing Herla to black dog-demons, from eleventh-centurymedieval sources to folk-tales collected since the Sec-ond World War. If you aren’t delighted with it, you maywell be under an evil spell.”
 Diane Purkiss
