[The next book I shall be looking at in more detail will be -
OBSERVATIONS ON POPULAR ANTIQUITIES: CHIEFLY ILLUSTRATING THE ORIGIN OF OUR VULGAR CUSTOMS, CEREMONIES, AND SUPERSTITIONS.
BY JOHN BRAND,
M.A. FELLOW AND SECRETARY OF THE SOCIETY OF ANTIQUARIES OF LONDON;
ARRANGED AND REVISED, WITH ADDITIONS, BY HENRY ELLIS, F.R.S. SEC. S.A. KEEPER OF THE MANUSCRIPTS IN THE BRITISH MUSEUM.
I have got this book from the Internet Archive.
I have chosen this because it will cover all the counties of the Westcountry, is of quite an early date, and should not take too long to do. I am still welcoming any suggestions on what book to look at next - in the meen time this will do.
I have a thought to continue with Robert Hunt's "Popular Romances of the West Of England" (almost all Cornish lore) as I stopped this about a third of the way through (it is a very mighty tome!).]
