1893. This collection of traditionary lore connected with the holy wells, rivers, springs and lakes of England is the first systematic attempt made. The subject is almost inexhaustible and at the same time, a most interesting one. An honest endeavor has been made to render the work as accurate at possible, and to give the source of each account, where such could be ascertained. No attempt has been made at scientific classification or arrangement, other than the placing of the wells under their respective counties. Copiously illustrated by curious original woodcuts.
