Description

Traditions & Hearthside Stories Of West Cornwall Volume 1

by William Bottrell

Tales of Cornish Giants, Mermaids, Witches and Fairies; an essential source for the folklore of Cornwall.

In the 19th century William Bottrell compiled three volumes of Cornish folklore, legends and historical tales. This is the first book in that series. Bottrell tells stories of giants, mermaids, and a gallery of Cornish fairies including the spriggan, bucca, and the knackers, the earth elementals who live in the tin-mines. He also describes Cornish folk magic, and folklore about witches. The style is idiomatic, and the episodic stories are told with touches of dialect and localized in specific places in Cornwall. Attentive readers will notice an incredibly politically incorrect passage where he uses language about Muslims and Africans which will leave most shaking their heads. As per our policy the book is presented uncut and unedited. However, the bulk of the stories here are great fun to read and dimensionalize this little-known Celtic byway.

1) Legends of the West-Country Giants

2) The White Witch, or Charmer of Zennor

3) Sketches In Penzance

4) Newlyn

5) Mousehole

6) Nancy Trenoweth, the Fair Daughter of the Miller of Alsia

7) The Dwelling of Chenance.
