KIRKUS REVIEW

The notional, pursued extensively and traced with informed authority to their origins, in a collection of superstitions (and their variations), the sayings, symbols, customs, beliefs, charms, omens which make up our heritage of fancy and which have acquired the ""conviction of long familiarity"". Topically, here are literally hundreds of concepts, about nature, human beings, weddings, foods, fashions, dreams, illnesses, holidays, business, water, the heavens, numbers, etc., clarified, classified, often dispelled...Curiosa, which provide often fascinating incidental information.
