Author information

Scottish clergyman Robert Kirk meticulously handwrote "The Secret Commonwealth of Elves, Fauns and Fairies" in 1691. The seventh son of a large family, he was believed to have been gifted with second sight. Although poor, he went on to achieve a remarkable life, putting himself through school and eventually graduating from Saint Andrews University -- at the young age of 20 -- as a Doctor of Divinity.
