1867. Illustrative of the superstitious beliefs and practices, local customs and usages of the people of the County Palatine. The North of England generally, and Lancashire in particular, is remarkably rich in its folklore. Possessed and peopled in succession by the Celts of ancient Britain, but the Angles and other Teutonic peoples, by the Scandinavian races, and by Norman and other foreign settlers at early periods, the result of the respective contributions of these various peoples is necessarily a large mass of traditionary lore. It is the object of this volume to bring this together and present it in a collected form.
