From the Publisher:
“The classic exposition of ghosts, fairies, dragons, superstitions and supernatural folklore, drawn from the Welsh traditions.
This book contains much unique material, and has fascinating sections on Welsh fairies, mystic wells, warts, magic stones, basilisks, dwarfs, invisibility stones, water fairies, elves, fairy music, exorcisms, colour in fairy attire, laws of the spirit world, ghost habits, spectral animals, goblin veils, the serious significance of seemingly trivial customs, bells and ghosts, rocking stones, dragons and treasure hills, and much more.
The author was born near New York in 1836. In 1876, he was appointed U.S. Consul at Cardiff, Wales and it was during this time there that he collected and published the material on Welsh archaeology and history for which he became so well known.
