    Synopsis: "The superstitions listed in this book have all been found to exist in one part or another of the British Isles. Some still flourish, and others did so until comparatively recently. The majority are not, of course, confined to these islands. Many are universal, springing from hopes and fears common to the whole human race, and most exist in similar or slightly different forms in various parts of the world. Only a very few are peculiar to England, Scotland, Wales, or Ireland. Nevertheless, all are British in the sense that they are, or were, a part of our traditional belief."
