Folklore, Myths and Legends of Britain
"As a child, I devoured the information in my parents copy of Folklore, Myths and Legends of Britain, published by the Readers Digest in the mid-sixties. Inside its black, embossed covers, was a rich and magical world of Green Men, Stone Circles, Witches, Giants, Haunted Houses and Seasonal Customs. Single-handedly, it engendered my life-long interest in the folklore traditions of these Islands" - Simon Costin, The Museum of British Folklore.
