HB 1st Ed. Green cloth boards with black banding top and bottom. Gilt titles spine. 23.1 x 15cm. 77 pages. b/w frontis, complete with protective tissue in situ: Sectional view & ground plan of underground gallery called Uamh Sgalabhad.

He was interested in archaeology and appointed trustee of Lord Abercromby's endowment to the Archaeology department at Edinburgh University. He was a prominent proponent of euhemeristic origin of fairies. Theory found in early C19th, that considers fairies in British folklore to originate from pigmy, dwarf or small aboriginees that lived during Neolithic Britain or even earlier - which this book deals with. Condition: Marks on cover front and back - see pics. Slight top/bottom spine + corner rub. Not all the pages have been cut, so has obviously not been read right the way through. P49 cracked down seam - all binding holding firm. Some pages faint foxing, plate pages predominantly, but illustrations remain clear. P38/41 where someone has attempted to turn the page, because they were uncut page torn top blank margin. Otherwise clean, obvious little use, colour good. For age + rarity VGC. Will be sent recorded post. N° de ref. de la librería 001193
