3.0 out of 5 stars A SUPERB WORK OF REFERENCE, BUT LET DOWN BY PUBLISHER, 22 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Lore of the Land: A Guide to England's Legends, from Spring-heeled Jack to the Witches of Warboys (Paperback)
As other readers have pointed out, this is not a book to be read in one go, more a kind of reference work to dip in and out of. The book is huge, and more might have been gained by producing individual books on certain running themes: i.e. one work concentrating on ghosts, one on fairy mythology, one on the Devil and witchcraft and so on. That said, this work is endlessly fascinating, and expertly researched and I cannot fault the content at all. The reason why I have given this book three stars is because of a publishing mess-up which (in my copy, at least) completely fudges the section on Yorkshire. A great swathe of this chapter is missing, replaced by duplicated pages from earlier and also some pages duplicated from the bibliography. This messy, unprofessional approach to publishing this work slightly detracted from what I otherwise consider to be an excellent book.
