Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: THE first section of the ensuing Essay, effects the principal objectsof a Preface; yet the Author has not the confidence to intrude uponhis Reader, without premising a few pages, to bespeak his attention,and conciliate his esteem without offering some apology for thenature of his subject, and the manner in which it has been treated.To some persons, the utility of such a work may not be obvious. Itmay be asked What interest has the present age, in a mew of theerrors and prejudices of the Pagan Britons? To obviate this, andsimilar inquiries, I would suggest the reflection, that the history ofmankind is, in a great measure, the history of errors and prejudicesthat the superstition we have now to contemplate, however absurdin itself, affected the general tone of thinking in several districts ofBritain 'that its influence continued to recent times, and hasscarcely vanished at the present day. To an age of general inquiry,an investigation of the form and principles of this superstition, mustsurely be a subject of interest. In our times, a split of research,which few are so unjust as to impute to idle curiosity, embraces allthe regions of the known world: and is our own country the onlyspot that must be deemed unworthy of our attention?.

Inhaltsangabe: THE first section of the ensuing Essay, effects the principal objects of a Preface; yet the Author has not the confidence to intrude upon his Reader, without premising a few pages, to bespeak his attention, and conciliate his esteem without offering some apology for the nature of his subject, and the manner in which it has been treated. To some persons, the utility of such a work may not be obvious. It may be asked What interest has the present age, in a mew of the errors and prejudices of the Pagan Britons? To obviate this, and similar inquiries, I would suggest the reflection, that the history of mankind is, in a great measure, the history of errors and prejudices that the superstition we have now to contemplate, however absurd in itself, affected the general tone of thinking in several districts of Britain 'that its influence continued to recent times, and has scarcely vanished at the present day. To an age of general inquiry, an investigation of the form and principles of this superstition, must surely be a subject of interest. In our times, a split of research, which few are so unjust as to impute to idle curiosity, embraces all the regions of the known world: and is our own country the only spot that must be deemed unworthy of our attention?
