Originally published in 1930, this book is a comprehensively detailed study of folklore and traditional ceremonies and beliefs in Britain, conveniently broken down into months of the year. Well-illustrated throughout with photographs, it has much to offer the student of folklore. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Hesperides Press are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork. Contents Include: January, New Year's Day - February, Benediction of the Throat - March, The Tichborne Dole - April, Hocktide at Hungerford - May, May Day Ceremonies - June, Riding the Marches at Hawick - July, The Historic Tynwald Ceremony - August, Punch and Judy - September, The Dance of the Deermen - October, Fox Hunting, Etc - Halloween - November, Bonfire Night - December, The Christmas Ceremony at Killin, Perthshire
