Cambridge, MD: Western Publishing Co., 1973. Limited to 1000 copies. [Memoirs of the Alma Egan Hyatt Foundation] A FINE VOLUME, bound quarter cloth with paper boards. Massive research volume on natural folk magick and witchcraft. "This field collection of folk beliefs relating to the subjects in the title is immediately a classic. Nothing will surpass it, and the material can never again be remotely captured as it has been here. Hyatt is unquestionably the greatest single field collector of folk beliefs, customs, and superstitions that America has known." [xxiv) 921 pages, (xxxi]. Folio. A massive work of five volumes, but rarely seen as a set, and not essential as most of the materials related are anecdotes and fragments gathered in the 1930s. (Item ID: 15728)
