    The Selected Writings Of Andrew Lang
    Andrew Lang - Hardback - Pickering & Chatto
    Andrew Lang (1844-1912) had a pivotal role in a number of late 19th and early 20th century discourses. He was among the founders of the discipline of 'psychical research' as well as being committed to the promotion of Scottish history. Despite Lang's popularity as a writer and a compiler at the time, there are no scholarly editions of his work available. This edition enables a more complete assessment of Lang's work, covering the four areas of study with which he is most associated: myths and magic; literary criticism; Scotland; and folklore. It also includes previously unpublished works.
