More About This Textbook


Katharine Briggs (1898-1980) was internationally acclaimed as one of Britain's most respected folklore scholars as well as one of the most popular authors in the folklore field. She was president of the English Folklore Society, which still gives an annual literary prize in her name, as well as honorary member of the American Folklore Society.
This collection is a facsimile of thirteen volumes of the works of Katharine Briggs, spanning the whole of her publishing career, from 1959 to 1980. The works provide detailed coverage of all aspects of British folklore, from studies of the beliefs of Shakespeare and his contemporaries in fairies, magic and witchcraft to detailed histories of regional folktales and the creatures that inhabit them.
