Peasant Customs and Savage Myths, Volume I: 0-415-20477-1 and Volume II: 0-415-20478-X
These two companion volumes bring together the theoretical writings of some of the most brilliant folklorists, including Andrew Lang, Sidney Hartland, George Laurence Gomme, Alfred Nutt and Joseph Jacobs. The subjects they discuss range from the origin and dispersion of the Aryans to the animistic philosophy of 'savages' and the survivals of primitive beliefs among peasants.
