Description

This book is a facsimile reprint and may contain imperfections such as marks, notations, marginalia and flawed pages. 1904. The main object of this book is to afford persons interested in the subject of folklore some key to the general literature of folklore. The general and rapid survey of folklore attempted in this work is taken from the anthropological standpoint. On the enlarged bases of the anthropological method, folklore is expanded from the mere telling of stories and recording of old wives' fables into an inclusive interpretation of early man's way of looking at the world. Contents: The Separable Soul; Animal Ancestors; Animism-Ghosts and Gods; The Other-World; Magic; and Myths, Folk Tales, etc.show more
