Description

A magnificently researched, illustrated directory of the fairies of the British Isles. There are entries on assipattles and mumpokers, on fairy dress, on fairy crafts and food, and, most useful this, on spells to obtain power over these fiendish little people. It is so entertaining that it is recommended as a bedside companion than as a serious technical reference book.show more
