Interesting stuff. I think it'd be more interesting if there were more dates, such as when certain superstitions were in their prime and that sort of thing.
It often makes it sound like a lot of the I use it a lot in my horror writing! Good info!

Radford's Encyclopedia of Superstitions Greenwood, Its two major flaws are a failure to spell out clearly at the beginning of each entry exactly what superstition is being covered and a tendency to plunge immediately into ancient examples of folk wisdom or incidents on the subject. This is not so much a dictionary as a trove of historical examples of superstitious behavior. As such, it has a very limited appeal to advanced scholars and limited appeal to libraries. It could, however, serve as a back-up for those who want further information not found in works like that of the Radfords.
