Reseña del editor:

In the late 17th century, a Scottish minister went looking for creatures of "a middle nature betwixt man and angel." Robert Kirk roamed the Highlands, talking to country folk about their encounters with supernatural creatures. This remarkable record of their testimonials offers rare glimpses into a world of everyday magic.

Biografía del autor:

Scottish clergyman Robert Kirk meticulously handwrote The Secret Commonwealth of Elves, Fauns and Fairies in 1691. The seventh son of a large family, he was believed to have been gifted with second sight. Although poor, he went on to achieve a remarkable life, putting himself through school and eventually graduating from Saint Andrews University ― at the young age of 20 ― as a Doctor of Divinity.
