Book Description Book Club Associates, London, 1974. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Dust jacket has very light edgewear, small name and small bookplate remains front end page, lightly tanned pages, otherwise very clean and well bound. First published in 1948 by Edwin and Mona Radford, revised and much enlarged in 1961 by Christina Hole. Superstitions are the living relics of ways of thought much older than our own, and of beliefs once strongly held to which we still unconsciously cling. Here are charms once in daily use in dairy and kitchen; spells used by or against witches; fairy lore and curious legends; folk remedies for illness; customs of birth, marriage and death; and a host of practices - many with us still - intended to bring good luck or avert evil. Size: 6" x 9" 384 Pgs. Bookseller Inventory # 82545
