From the cover: This book is the result of many years of study and research into the folklore and traditions of Guernsey on the part of Marie De Garis. It is a subject in which she has been deeply interested since childhood. Here are stories of the fairies, of witchcraft, both black and white, of apparitions and other hauntings, of childrens games, folktales and ballads, old cures and the lore of plants, ancient customs and much else besides. The book will be welcomed by islanders and visitors alike. It will keep the reader enthralled from the first page to the last.

It is also a not insignificant contribution to the science of folklore.

Very Good. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wrappers. Pages lightly age-tanned.
