Excerpt from Popular Traditions of Lancashire, Vol. 1 of 3

Under the little of "Traditions of Lancashire," the Author of these volumes published, in the year 1829, a collection of popular tales current in that county, illustrative, in a peculiar manner, of its history. It was so favourably received that a second edition was almost immediately called for, and after some delay published. A Second Series also, in two volumes, which followed them in 1831, met with success equally satisfactory. Both works were noticed in highly flattering terms by the leading journals, and by Sir Walter Scott, whose approbation is no common eulogy, in his "Tales of the Crusaders," and in his history of Demonology and Witchcraft. But the cost of these publications, arising from the expensive nature of their illustrations, was much too high to allow of their becoming as generally known, perhaps, as the Author could have desired.
