Since the writers in the old Gentleman's Magazine occupied them- selves with lucubrations about fairies and their ways and habits, the study of folk-lore has passed from the hands of the curiosity- monger to those of the scientific student. The world has learnt, all too late, that man's history is the grandest scientific problem to be solved ; that "The proper study of mankind is man," and that to obtain, anything like adequate results in this stupendous study, every tittle of evidence is necessary. All the established forms of religion have long been recognised as materials for history ; but it is only just now that we are looking to the old faiths and traditions for information ; and this new study has enabled us to recognise two fundamental laws of man's history the persistence of custom and the persistence of tradition. It is with. the latter subject that we have most to do in the present volume of collections from the Gentleman's Magazine Traditional Lore, as I Have ventured to entitle the contents of the following pages. One of the most extensive divisions into which traditional lore is grouped, is that relating to fairies. Literature has, as long ago certainly as the days of Spenser, Drayton, and Shakespeare, turned its attention to the doings of fairies, and it appears to me that the fascination, which these beings have exercised over the poetic imagi- nation has done much to obscure the archaeological importance of the traditions which exist concerning them. When the stately verse of Milton (see pp. 39, 41) is influenced by the traditional doings of fairies, we may imagine that minds like those we have mentioned above, like also Herrick and other poets, should turn to fairies for some of their brightest imagery. On pp. 47-50 will be found some specimens of the way in which minor poets have dealt with the fairies. But, if later poetical literature has idealized fairies, the era before Shakespeare did much worse it did not, like Shakespeare, go to the woods and fields of Warwickshire and other counties for its infor- mation about fairies, but it tacked on the old classical mythology to fairy beliefs, and so enabled Chaucer to write " Pluto that is king of the fayerye,"
